Colorado Public Radio Interview on Psychedelics

Andrew Kenney, Public Affairs Reporter for Colorado Public Radio contacted CPA about the proliferation of unlicensed "psychedelic guides" who are providing psychedelic mushrooms and receiving payment to accompany people during psychedelic trips. He requested an interview with a professional who could speak about potential concerns with this activity. CPA Board Member, Jana Bolduan Lomax, PsyD, who is currently enrolled in a year-long training program and has been researching this modality of therapy, was one of Andrew's interviewees. Dr. Lomax states, "there will certainly be more media interest as Colorado moves forward with the Natural Medicine practices, regulations and consumer education. I’m cautiously optimistic and feel a deep responsibility to help my clientspeers, and community members who seek these therapies to be safe, well-educated consumers and have realistic expectations about the treatments and providers."

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.
