Last week, the Senate passed a state budget package that made difficult cuts across every state department.
Senate President Brandon Shaffer (D-Longmont), who is the sponsor of Senate Bill 109, offered the following comment on the committee passage of his bill:
“We need to find innovative ways to support the education of our kids. If we invest in kids’ education in their early years, we expand their future opportunity. Right now funding is limited, and giving Coloradans this opportunity to support schools is a smart way to do more for Colorado kids.”
Senate Bill 1 now goes to the Senate Finance Committee for consideration. The bill is sponsored in the House by Representative Andy Kerr (D-Lakewood).
Senate Bill 109 now goes to full Senate for Consideration. The bill is sponsored in the House by Representative Judy Solano (D-Brighton).
