More Info

Colorado Senior Lobby is picking up where we left off last year with the very successful Senior Homestead Exemption event. Building on that, on August 12th, we will provide updates on the Homestead Exemption legislative activity, and put it into the context of how it fits into the state budget - how it gets paid for and why that is a recurring issue. Most of our state budget is run not by the people we elect to represent us, but by algorithms. Formulas. Constitutional and federally imposed Funding mandates. Self-imposed revenue and spending caps - determined by algorithms.   Voters are often asked to make major decisions on tax policy. Be an informed voter.
