Chalkbeat Colorado: Proposition 109: Would fixing our ‘damn roads’ hurt our schools?

Michael Fields, executive director of Colorado Rising Action, a conservative advocacy group, said Proposition 109 doesn’t present the dire trade-offs that some fear. He points to this most recent legislative session as an example, when lawmakers gave a lot more money to schools, roads, and the public pension system. Next year, the Trump administration’s tax cuts are expected to generate between $196 million and $340 million in additional state revenue.

“[Lawmakers] gave money to transportation and to education,” he said. “That’s the model going forward. The message from voters is clear: They want roads fixed and they want teachers paid more. And I think we can do both in the existing budget.”
