Colorado lawmakers on Tuesday made their final tweaks in a bill that would give victims of childhood sex abuse more time to file lawsuits against entities that employed the abusers.

The bill now goes back to the House and Senate. If the changes are approved by both chambers, the bill will go to Gov. Bill Owens, who has not said whether he will sign it.

A special conference committee of three senators and three representatives - four Democrats and two Republicans - made two key changes to House Bill 1090.
