Colorado Proposition CC, the “Allow State to Retain Excess Revenue for Transportation and Education Measure,” is on the ballot in Colorado as a legislatively referred state statute on November 5, 2019. Learn more about this proposition and the reasons for and against it. Also, learn more about Tabor and Gallagher in the process.

Brown will explain the history and intent of the Gallagher and TABOR amendments to our state constitution and review how they impact our quality of life, both individually and collectively, and in both positive and negative ways.  Because these are amendments to our state constitution, only the voters — not their elected representatives — can amend them if they ever desire such change.

This will be a facilitated panel discussion. Each panelist will provide a brief introduction and overview, followed by a moderated Q&A with the audience. The audience is encouraged to come prepared with questions.

This program is presented in partnership with the Vail Symposium.
