Colorado Fiscal Institute Purple Book
Where does Colorado rank in terms of income taxes? What about school funding per pupil? How does Colorado's corporate income tax rank among states? What about its gas tax?
Wouldn't it be nice if there were one place to find answers to all these questions? Well, now there is. The Colorado Fiscal Institute, which believes that the state budget is everyone's business, has created an easy-to-read guide, "The Purple Book: A Colorado Compendium of Useful Fiscal Facts." It's an easy-to-read guide that gives basic information about the state budget and taxes, as well as simple explanations about policies and laws that impact Coloradans.

LWVCO Leader of Democracy Event
The League of Women Voters of Colorado's annual Colorado Leader of Democracy Event on Wednesday, June 17 will honor outstanding Coloradan Justice Rebecca Love Kourlis and her efforts as Executive Director for the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System.
Justice Kourlis served Colorado's judiciary for nearly two decades, first as a trial court judge and then as a justice of the Colorado Supreme Court. During her time on the bench she witnessed a system increasingly under attack from outside forces that were failing to deliver the justice she swore to uphold, so in January 2006 she resigned from the Supreme Court to establish the Institute for the Advancement for the American Legal System. Her awards and honors will be recognized and her speech will explain her organization's' goals and accomplishments. This is the State League's signature fundraising event. A wine and hors d'oeuvres buffet will be at 5:30 p.m. and a speech by Ms. Kourlis will be at 6:15 p.m. The cost is $100 per person and the registration deadline is June 11. More information here.
