About Prop CC

What will Prop CC Do?

At a time when our education funding rates are lower than Mississippi and Alabama, passing Prop CC on Nov. 5 will give Colorado schools some much-needed resources. Out-of-state billionaires have already funded our opposition. They want to take money away from our kids’ education—but we won’t let that happen. 

Here’s how it works: Prop CC will allow Colorado to keep all funds already collected under the current tax rates. Anything that is above the current revenue cap will be distributed directly into K-12 education (as well as higher ed and transportation). It won’t eliminate Colorado’s budget woes, but it’s a great step forward—and a step that we’d be taking without raising taxes. 

Good schools. Good roads. Great state.

Colorado isn't a poor state. Wouldn't it be great if we stopped acting like one? 

  • Nearly 60% of school districts across the state have four-day school weeks 
  • Despite our booming economy, Colorado is the WORST in the U.S. in wage competitiveness for teachers
  • Colorado needs to spend $2,700 MORE per pupil just to meet the national average, but we just don’t have the funding
  • We owe our schools more than $8 BILLION of money that was taken and never replaced since the Great Recession

Here’s what it does (and doesn’t do):

No

Amend the Constitution?

Change any existing formulas?

Follow TABOR?

Our kids’ future is counting on our ability to get the word out—and get the vote out.
