Supporters of a ballot initiative to raise money for Colorado schools kicked off their campaign last week - just as the Secretary of State announced a review.
Governor John Hickenlooper helped kick off the ballot campaign for Initiative 22 Thursday. The goal is ask voters to raise income taxes to pay for K-12 schools this fall.
As challenging logistics and history loom, Colorado's 51st State Initiative has moved another step forward with finalized wording of a ballot question.
A measure asking Colorado voters if they want to raise income taxes by nearly $1 billion a year to pay for public school upgrades is a step closer to the November ballot.
A roughly billion-dollar tax increase is likely to go before voters this fall. It’s part of a larger package of education reform that state lawmakers passed last session.
