What Colorado lawmakers did and did not accomplish in 2016 session
DENVER – The General Assembly’s 2016 session ended Wednesday night. The Latin phrase Sine Die has never been so popular in the Mile High City. So what passed and what didn’t? Budget Lawmakers avoided most of the major budget cuts called for in the beginning of session. While lawmakers did give out more cash for K-12 education, higher education did not see any increase. The Colorado Department of Transportation also saw about $50 million less than expected and no taxpayer refunds will be handed out.
