COLORADO – Governor Polis laid out his plans for free full-day kindergarten to the Joint Education Committee Wednesday.

Polis said that saving reserve funds for schools, higher local property taxes, and dedicated work by legislators will ensure that this won’t be a temporary experiment.

The Governor has asked for $227 million for the program. He said he hopes that lawmakers will move quickly to secure the funding when the new budget takes effect on July 1st.
