Amendment 73

The Economic Impacts of a $1.6 Billion Tax Increase to Spend on Education

September, 2018

The $1.6 billion tax increase proposed by Initiative 73 will negatively impact the Colorado economy, cost private sector jobs, and place a significant tax burden on Coloradans.


A partnership of public and private organizations announced in July 2013 the formation of a collaboration to provide Colorado lawmakers, policymakers, business leaders, and citizens, with greater insight into the economic impact of public policy decisions that face the state and surrounding regions. The parties involved include the Colorado Association of REALTORS®, the Colorado Bankers Association, Colorado Concern, Common Sense Policy Roundtable, and Denver South Economic Development Partnership. This consortium meets monthly to discuss pressing economic issues impacting the state and to prioritize and manage its independent research efforts.
