Interactive video lesson plan for: Do We Need to Fix the State Budget?

Activity overview:

At the Buechner Breakfast First Friday on Sept. 2, 2016, a panel of experts addressed the question: Do we need to fix the state budget?

With a contentious election coming in November, including a possibile party control change in both chambers of the state legislature, how should we think about the state budget? Why was the ballot initiative pulled back? What happens if no changes are made to the hospital provider fee or to TABOR? What will happen if/when the state faces an economic downturn, after several years of a strong boom in jobs and taxes?

To address these questions, we have assembled a panel of experts, with different perspectives and points of view:
- Henry Sobanet, Director, Colorado Office of State Planning and Budgeting
- Phyllis Resnick, Lead Economist, Colorado Futures Center, Colorado State University
- Lisa Weil, Director, Great Education Colorado
- Linda Gorman, Director, Health Care Policy Institute, Independence Institute
