In Case You Missed It …
Republican Senator Greg Brophy says 60, 61 and 101 will shut down higher education and lead to TABOR repeal
From the Fort Morgan Times:
Colorado would lose roughly half of its general fund revenue, which would mean that almost all of what is left would have to go to K-12 education, said State Sen. Greg Brophy.
He estimated that 99.2 percent of state funding would be required to go to elementary and secondary education, leaving little for roads, prisons, colleges or Medicaid, he said.
“Higher education would just be done,” Brophy said.
Brophy reminded the crowd that he is a noted fiscal conservative, but this is too much.
If it is passed and people begin to see the tough times it brings, the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR) would be repealed the next year, Brophy predicted.
