To All Colorado League members:
The League of Women Voters of Colorado Board of Directors met Wednesday, September 19 for their regular board meeting. One of the items on the agenda was to decide our positions on the various ballot proposals. As one ballot issue, Amendment 73, Funding for Public Schools, generated considerable discussion and debate, it merits a special explanation. Click Amendment 73 to read more.
