Prop CC is good for Colorado kids and families

The Children’s Campaign supports Proposition CC, which you’ll find on your fall ballot due Nov. 5. We support it because it is a strong step toward ensuring our public investment system works for all Coloradans and supports the services that kids and families need to thrive.

What does it do? Prop CC allows the state to keep revenue that it already collects under existing tax rates. Currently, under certain conditions that policymakers and voters don’t control, some tax revenue is returned to taxpayers. This is different than our state and federal income tax returns.

What is the impact? If it passes, Prop CC would allow Colorado to invest in three critical areas: K-12 education, higher education and transportation. Learn more about the measure, add your endorsement, and sign up for newsletters to help spread the word
