The issues

For all local voters:

Amendment 78: Legislative authority for spending state money

• Transfers the power to appropriate custodial funds (state revenue not generated through taxes) from the state treasurer to the state legislature

Proposition 119: Learning Enrichment and Academic Progress program

• Creates an out-of-school education program and a board to govern it and increases the marijuana retail sales tax by 5% to partially fund the program

Proposition 120: Property tax assessment rate reduction

• Reduces the residential and non-residential property tax rates; authorizes the state to retain and spend $25 million in revenue above the state’s TABOR spending cap, which it would otherwise be required to refund to taxpayers

For voters within the West Routt Fire Protection District:

Referendum 6A

• Increases taxes for properties within the West Routt Fire Protection District by $349,908 through a 3-mill increase to the district’s current levy, which amounts to $21.45 per $100,000 of assessed property value per year and $87 per $100,000 of commercial property value per year. The funds would be used for maintenance, repairs and the addition of personnel.
