Colorado lawmakers to discuss school finance plan

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado lawmakers sponsoring a measure changing the way public schools in Colorado are financed will be in Glenwood Springs on Tuesday to explain a tax ballot proposal that is before voters this fall.

According to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, representatives from area school districts have been invited to meet with state Sen. Mike Johnston and Rep. Millie Hamner.

The tax proposed would raise nearly $1 billion a year for education upgrades, including expanded kindergarten and preschool, and more attention for disabled students and students learning English.
