MSU Denver’s Board of Trustees supports Prop CC
Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Board of Trustees last week unanimously passed a resolution in support of Proposition CC. The Colorado ballot initiative would allow the state to reinvest excess revenue it is currently required to refund under the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights.
The proposition would redirect existing tax funding toward higher education, K-12 schools and transportation. If the measure passes, it is estimated that $300 million would be distributed equally among each of these areas in fiscal year 2019-20.
“This resolution demonstrates the board’s strong support of an initiative that will benefit our students,” Trustee Elaine Gantz Berman said. “The additional resources for higher education will help MSU Denver keep costs affordable, reducing the burden on students and creating even more opportunities for them to advance their lives.”
