The article that Colorado Treasurer Mike Coffman has returned to office after a 10-month tour of military duty in Iraq. The challenges facing Coffman are the reforms to a grossly underfunded pension fund and the securitization of the state's approximately $1 billion share of the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement with tobacco companies. Coffman believes that the U.S. involvement in Iraq has helped control domestic terror attacks.
