This November we all have a chance to start fixing our roads and funding our schools by voting yes on Prop CC. If passed, Prop CC would let the state keep excess tax revenue in the good years when we actually exceed the TABOR cap. The excess would be invested equally in schools, transportation, and secondary education. The expected amount is just $40 per year for an average taxpayer. With the number 1 economy in the nation, there’s no good reason to starve our infrastructure and schools of the funding necessary for us all to thrive. I’m tired of my state being dead last in school funding with no sustainable way to fix our roads and bridges. Also, Prop CC includes transparency, requiring annual, independent audits to show the public how the money is spent.Prop CC is a step in the right direction.
