Colorado voters gave a mixed reaction Tuesday on a pair of statewide tax increases. Voters didn’t want to tax themselves to pay for education, but were overwhelmingly willing to tax recreational marijuana to help rebuild schools.
One of two statewide issues facing voters Nov. 5 is whether to approve an increase in income taxes to help fund K - 12 schools. Most education groups support Amendment 66, which would raise nearly $1 billion a year.
