Colorado State University-Pueblo will not require a tuition increase, or employee layoffs. The board-approved budget will balance a potential $21 million deficit.

The Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment officials say another Pueblo County resident has died related to COVID-19, bringing the total number of Pueblo County deaths to 20.
