Under The Dome - June 2023 Quarterly Revenue Forecast

The Joint Budget Committee met today for the June 2023 Economic Forecast. Legislative Council Staff (LCS) and the Office of State Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) forecasts show a continued, yet moderate, economic expansion. Both LCS and OSPB noted that inflationary pressures in Colorado are dropping, but at a slower rate than the United States as a whole, due to elevated housing costs. While individual final tax payments were lower than expected, corporate income tax revenues have surpassed expectations in Colorado and across the country. The risk of near-term recession is less than previous quarterly projections and the revenue forecast anticipates a continued yet slowing expansion with growth projected in the out years. State revenue is projected to exceed the TABOR Referendum C cap through the three-year forecast period according to both forecasts.

Under The Dome - Governor Polis 30-day Clock

Bill Signings Yesterday, June 7, marked the final day for Governor Polis to act on bills, choosing to sign, veto or let bills become law without his signature. The “30-day clock” is a time for the Governor and legislative champions to highlight the work of the legislative session with their constituents, garner press attention, and celebrate the big wins of the year. Governor Polis highlighted a fiscally responsible and bipartisan budget that includes record savings for the future and record investments in Colorado students. He also highlighted what her termed “nationleading laws” in education and workforce development, improving math scores, achieving 100% renewable energy by 2040, harnessing geothermal, making Colorado one of the top ten safest states, and measures aimed at helping save people money on health care and prescription drugs, as well as a measure to cut property taxes for Coloradans and seniors and address housing challenges. Gov. Polis also signed into law measures to allow Colorado farmers and ranchers to legally fix their own equipment, protect access to reproductive health care, and combat gun violence.
