The Public Education Voter SLATE YES on Amendment B Amendment B would remove a decades-old formula in the constitution that has resulted in reduced local funding for schools, fire and police departments, and other community services.  If Amendment B passes, the Residential Assessment Rate (the percent of the value of homes that is taxed) will stay frozen where it is, and will protect critical services from deeper cuts. If it doesn't pass, the formula will force a reduction in the Residential Assessment Rate that could result in as much as $500 million in cuts to public school funding, as well as crippling cuts to local services.

YES on Proposition EE* Prop EE would bring in an additional $375 million for public schools (including $90 million for rural schools) over the next three years by placing an additional tax on nicotine products - including vaping products, which Colorado does not currently tax. After three years, this portion of the revenue will be dedicated to early childhood education. Great Ed supports the short-term funding for schools and long-term funding for preschool, as well as the effort to reduce teen vaping. However, we have added an asterisk because: Colorado’s tax system is already inequitable, and “sin taxes” disproportionately impact lower income individuals. Great Ed will continue to fight for a more fair tax code. Voters must understand that Proposition EE does not begin to address the depths of the school funding crisis. In 2012, the campaign for the marijuana tax gave many voters the false impression that school funding would be "fixed" if passed. That impression lingers to this day.  The Proposition EE campaign may also leave voters thinking this tax will adequately fund schools. If that happens, it could negatively affect future efforts to truly meet the needs of students.

The Public Education Voter SLATE NO on Proposition 116 Prop 116 reduces the state income tax rate from 4.63% to 4.55%, which would further decrease the amount of funding available for public education (e.g., teacher pay, mental health supports, technology and PPE). Colorado's funding has not even recovered from the last recession and is already being slashed due to the economic downturn brought on by COVID-19. Worse yet, this “millionaire’s tax cut” will make Colorado’s already unfair tax code even worse. Colorado's top 1% will receive millions in tax cuts, while the average taxpayer will get back only about 40 bucks a year.

The Public Education Voter SLATE NO on Proposition 117

Prop 117 further threatens school funding by taking away one of the few tools still available to the legislature to help fund essential public services. Colorado’s investment in our people and communities is already among the lowest in the nation because of formulas and restrictions in our constitution. Prop 117 will only make it worse.
