Colorado Senate Approves State Budget
DENVER.- Colorado's Senate has given the nod to the State budget Tuesday. The bill passed today on a 20 to 15 vote, with all Democrats in favor and all Republicans against. Voters still need to approve about $1 billion in higher income taxes before it can become official. The bill aims to level funding in district across the state, with more money for districts with high numbers of needy students or English language learners. The bill would also lead to full-day kindergarten across the state. It's the biggest revision in decades to how Colorado funds K-12 public schools.
