Denver Voters Reject College Affordability Sales Tax


 Denver voters say no to raising sales tax for affordable college.

On November 3, 2015, the people of Denver, Colorado, rejected the College Affordability Sales Tax (Measure 2A). Had it been approved, it would have increased Denver sales tax by 0.08% (total rate 7.73%) and generated approximately $10.6 million annually for programs that make college more affordable for Denver students.
