This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $4 million in order to help with paying school operational costs for the next year.[2] This measure was proposed as a way to ease the financial burden placed on the district when a bridge loan usually used by the district was put on hold due to the uncertainty of State measure 61. Only if Amendment 61 was approved would this bond be implemented, if it too was approved by voters. The bond would add $350,000 annually to local taxes and would fund operations from November 2010 till March 2011.[3]

Current Statewide

A 2013 statewide measure, Amendment 66, would authorize Colorado to increase taxes with an expected revenue increase of $950 million for school funding.[4]
