There is an incredible event happening tomorrow! You have an opportunity to participate in a statewide effort to positively impact education as well as giving choices back to the people of Colorado!
GIVE VOTERS A CHOICE IN NOVEMBER.
It’s up to us. In Colorado, when state revenues grow faster than inflation plus growth (like now), the legislature is not allowed to keep and invest all the revenues that it collects under our current tax rates. Unless voters act, funds above the revenue limit have to be held back and rebated to taxpayers—even if that requires deeper cuts to schools, higher education and other essential public services. Other states can grow and invest in their infrastructure during prosperous times. Colorado cannot do so without a vote of its citizens. These proposals follow the state’s requirement to ask voters to allow the legislature to keep and and invest revenue generated under the existing tax rates.
Without raising taxes, this proposal allows the state to keep and invest revenue into essential public services, such as education, transportation, mental health services and senior services. #InvestInColorado
Ready to carry a petition again? Jonna, Shawna, and our volunteer coordinators are all carrying petitions and asking our friends to sign and support Colorado Priorities, Proposition 117.
The proposals follow the state’s requirement to ask permission from voters to allow Colorado to keep all tax revenue collected.
The proposals also direct legislators to invest any funds above the revenue limit into education, including preschool through 12th-grade education, vocational education and higher education; transportation, including highways, bridges, underpasses, mass transit and other projects related to transporting people; mental health services and senior services.
These proposals do not amend the constitution, and Coloradans will continue to vote on all tax increases.
