A proposed increase in corporate and individual income tax that would create a $1.6 billion annual boost in education funding will be on the November ballot, Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams announced Thursday.
Amendment 73, as the proposal is now known, is the first of seven ballot initiatives submitted by state residents to be cleared as having enough signatures to go before voters in the Nov. 6 election. Of the 179,390 signatures submitted by organizers, 130,022 were determined to be valid — far more than the 98,492 needed to go up for a statewide vote.
