2024 Budget Inadequacies

Year after year we’ve seen lawmakers forced to make excruciating choices about how to spend Colorado’s scarce resources.

Do you pay for nurses for disabled children who need round-the-clock care, or do you fund meal delivery for older, fragile Coloradans who may not have the wherewithal to put lunch in a microwave?

As a prosperous state with a $1.9 billion “surplus,” lawmakers shouldn’t have to make those kinds of choices. We’ve started a new video series to shine a light on those very difficult budget decisions, dictated by artificially-concocted budget restraints that serve politics, and not Coloradans in need. 

We hope you’ll watch the videos in this series, and share with your networks. We all need to better understand the choices that antiquated budget constraints force on our state.
