Please join us on January 9 for our first weekly forum of the 2017 legislative session!
Carol Hedges, Executive Director of the Colorado Fiscal Institute
Carol Hedges has been an important part of the research, policy and advocacy community in Colorado for more than 15 years. She served as policy director for Governor Roy Romer in the late 1990s focusing on human service, education and budget policy. As program officer at the Piton Foundation in Denver, Ms. Hedges directed the Denver Workforce Initiative, a project of the Annie E. Casey Jobs Initiative. While serving as a senior policy analyst with the Bell Policy Center, Ms. Hedges authored Ten Years of TABOR, a comprehensive study of the effects of Colorado’s Taxpayers Bill of Rights. As a recognized expert on the effects of Colorado’s TABOR amendment, Ms. Hedges has been involved in education efforts on TABOR-like proposals across the country.
Ms. Hedges will provide an insightful overview of the fiscal outlook in Colorado and the implications for Colorado’s legislators and advocates as they begin their work in 2017. We are thrilled to have Ms. Hedges present at our first weekly forum of the 2017 legislative session. Please be sure to attend what promises to be a fantastic presentation!
