Issues

Tax increases for education

In early August, Senator Heath submitted signatures for an initiative to increase taxes in Colorado for education funding. The measure would increase the sales tax from 2.9% to 3% for the next five years, and it would also increase the income tax to 5% from 4.63% for five years. The increases would generate an estimated $3 billion in revenue for education.[6]
