Sen. Rollie Heath (D-Boulder) recently proposed a new statewide initiative that he calls, “our kids can’t wait.” The initiative is suppose to increase state funding to education by increasing taxes. <br />
In 2009 Democrat Senator Sue Windels carried a Bill in the Senate, SB09-199, that was supposed to freeze property taxes, called the Mill Levy Freeze. This freeze resulted in an increase in the tax burden, but the money never made it to the State Education Fund. Sen. Keith King (R-Colorado Springs) said, “instead [the money] went into the state general fund and was used for many other programs, including entitlements.”<br />
King wants to know, “Will this new initiative supplant or supplement K-12 education?”<br />
Sen. King opposes this new initiative because the money won’t go to K-12 education, further enables big bloated government, and hurts the economy by raising taxes at a time when unemployment in Colorado is at an all time high.<br />
Senator Keith King represents Colorado Senate District 12 and is the Administrator of Colorado Springs Early Colleges. Senate District 12 includes parts of the City of Colorado Springs, Security, and Fort Carson. Colorado Springs Early Colleges is a charter school located in Colorado Springs. The school has an enrollment of 450 students and provides a personal and supportive atmosphere.<br />
