Understand Your State Budget

Understand Your State Budget

As you know, the State Capitol is closed and the remainder of the legislative session is in limbo.

As you know, the State Capitol is closed and the remainder of the legislative session is in limbo.

But I wanted to share with you a really useful site they put together for understanding our state budget. This new website goes through how the budget is created each year, where the money is being spent, and even gives an overview of our Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR). 

Here’s one of the graphs on the site showing how our taxes have exploded over the last 20 years:  

The more we all understand about how our state budget grows, even under the most taxpayer-friendly laws in the nation, the better we can fight back. 

These are unprecedented times, and like us, you’re probably getting dozens of emails every day with information about COVID-19. We’re going to stick to what we’re good at and continue to send you information about our Legislature and issues (other than coronavirus)  that are important to our families.
