Colorado Rising Action - What They’re Saying About Amendment 73

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
