logo

Join us for our June Membership luncheon, sponsored by Executive Services! Not only will you have the chance to network, but to hear an engaging presentation by Chris Stiffler from the Colorado Fiscal Institute regarding the state budget, TABOR, taxes on businesses, and much more! Be sure to reserve your seat today!

 

The program will be provided by Chris Stiffler, an economist from the Colorado Fiscal Institute.


Topic:
A little known provision in our Colorado Constitution known as Gallagher resurfaced and it's the reason why businesses pay 4 to 1 the property taxes than homes do, and it is one of the reasons why we struggle to fund our schools.  TABOR came up a lot in connection to how we fund rural hospitals.  A sales tax increase proposal failed but then another comprehensive transportation bill passed on the last week of the session.  What does this all means for Pueblo's schools, hospitals, roads, and property taxes?  Chris Stiffler will provide an easy-to-follow explanation of TABOR, Gallagher, the state budget and bills that passed in 2017 that will have an impact on Pueblo.
