State Revenue & Budget

Each year, the General Assembly is tasked with balancing constitutional, statutory, and federal requirements with other legislative considerations, such as competing policy priorities, caseload pressures, and the health of the state’s economy, in order to create a budget.  The Colorado Constitution effectively requires that the state maintain a balanced budget, spending only what it has available to it each year in revenue or savings.
