They're singin' our song

The School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado at Denver released a report yesterday called "Colorado’s Fiscal Future: We’ll Get What We Pay For." It's a familiar theme to folks who've been following our work over the years.

“Colorado is a wealthy state. Yet as a state we have elected to keep taxes and government spending among the lowest in the nation,” the report states. “Without raising revenues, it is becoming increasingly clear that we will not be able to maintain even current service levels. Soon, the citizens of Colorado will have to decide what they want from their state government and whether they are willing to pay for it.”

It's music to our ears. Coloradans have the power to decide what kind of a state they want. Now they need to use that power.
