Don’t be fooled #YesonAmendment73

As usual, dark money is doing it’s best to mislead you about Amendment 73, as we’ve shown with their blatant deception!

Don’t be fooled though, as they attempt to say that funding schools would hurt fire, police, parks, first responders, and anything else they add to that blatant lie.

There’s a public legal opinion from the Secretary of State’s office that proves otherwise. Check it out!  https://www.casb.org/site/handlers/filedownload.ashx?moduleinstanceid=1148&dataid=2432&FileName=Amendment%2073%20Legal%20Opinion.pdf

“These interpretations are incorrect. As an initial matter, neither is consistent with the stated intent of the drafters, the Blue Book, or the analysis by Legislative Council Staff. More importantly, however, neither alternative interpretation is consistent with the text of Amendment 73.”

“Similarly, Legislative Council Staff’s fiscal analysis of Amendment 73 does not endorse either of the alternative interpretations described above. It states that “[f]or property taxes levied by all other local governments, current law determines the residential assessment rate,” and that “[t]he calculation for the target percentage and the residential assessment rate will be determined by the assess values used for all other local governments and is unaffected by the measure.”21 These statements unambiguously reject the alternative interpretations, making clear that Gallagher formula will remain unaffected by Amendment 73.”

Will they continue this lie?


Don’t forget how “unfair” it is that the wealthiest people in the state might have to pay a little more in taxes while they already pay less  than those making less than them.

Our children, ALL Colorado children, deserve a quality education!
