What They’re Saying About Amendment 73


“we simply can’t support the large, cumbersome and potentially flawed proposal on the ballot this year that’s designed to give schools across the state a much-needed boost in funding.” – The Tribune

“Amendment 73 — which calls for a massive statewide tax hike to boost funding for K-12 education in Colorado — is simply too big, too complex and full of too many uncertainties to garner our support.” – The Tribune

“While we support better funding for education, this isn’t a great idea. It’s bad for families and not great for job growth.” – Colorado Springs Independent

“Ultimately our desire to support K-12 education was outweighed by all the flaws in this proposal” – Denver Post

“we are concerned by the sheer size of the tax increase.” – Denver Post
