Let’s Go, Colorado: Website Launch

Let’s Go, Colorado Campaign Launches Website and Signature Gathering Effort Statewide


The Let’s Go, Colorado campaign to support Initiative #153 is gaining momentum across the state.  The measure will ask the voters to increase the state sales tax by .62% (just over ½ a penny on a dollar purchase).  This would raise more than $750 million in the first year and more than $1 billion per year on average over 20 years to rebuild our aging, overcrowded transportation system. The funds will be distributed through the protected Highway User Tax Fund and shared between cities, counties and CDOT. These fund can be used only for transportation projects and services.

Visit the campaign’s new website where you can sign up to officially endorse the measure, get regular updates and (if you have not already) donate to the campaign! https://www.letsgocolorado.com/

 
 To learn more about the initiative read the Lets Go Colorado fact sheet here.
