Colorado Decides kicks off the 2018 fall season with a look at proposed Amendment 73

The legislature has been increasing funding toward education every year since 2001. Many are asking is “funding for funding sake” the answer? Luke Ragland (ReadyCO) does an amazing job breaking down the complexities of the poorly crafted Amendment 73. Noting that expenditures for administrators has doubled while teacher salaries have declined. “Amendment 73 is not a good strategy to improve education.”

“[73] is a dramatic departure away from the way we do things in Colorado. A 78% tax increase on the top bracket … it would put us with the 8th highest tax bracket in America on par with New York and Vermont.”
