Funds For Pro–Referendum C Campaign Reach $1.8 Million

Denver (AP) The fight over the November ballot measures is
heating up. Supporters of Referendum C say they have now raised $1.8 million dollars, including a million in the past month or so. The ballot measure will ask voters to give up more than $3 billion dollars in tax surplus refunds over the next five years.

Referendum D is also on the ballot, that spells out how
government would spend the surplus money if the other measure passes.

The biggest contributors for the campaign so far include the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, at $462,000, and the Colorado Education Association, at $200,000.

Opponents say they've raised $107,000 in contributions so far.
