  • The budget process & tax policy in Colorado are key determinants of how state funds are spent and how much is available for appropriation.
  • Fiscal notes provide information on the costs, revenue, and staffing impacts of legislation considered by the General Assembly and ballot measures referred to voters.
  • School finance funding for public K-12 education is one of the largest components of the state budget.  Detailed forecasting and analysis is provided to estimate school funding needs and the impact of school finance decisions on local school districts.
