Colorado Schools Get a Billion

One argument that proponents of Amendment 66 must overcome is that many of their potential supporters just approved a billion dollars in local tax increases to pay for operation and construction of public schools.

In 2012, after several years of fiscal drought, Colorado taxpayers in many local jurisdictions, including Denver, Jefferson, Cherry Creek and Pueblo, authorized what was reported as one billion dollars in tax increases.

Will they do it again one year later for a state fund using a distribution formula largely without detail?
