Voters should retain option on school financing, Buchanan testifies

Wade Buchanan, president of the Bell, testified on Wednesday against House Bill 14-1120, which would have denied Colorado voters the chance to fund the Future School Finance Act after this year.

The finance act was passed by the legislature last year, but it goes into effect only if voters approve funding for it. Even though Amendment 66 failed in November, the act gives voters until 2107 to consider funding proposals. HB 1120 would have halted any such ballot measures after this year.
