Joint Budget Committee Taking Public Testimony
Location: Legislative Services Building - 3rd Floor, JBC Committee Room
Address: 200 E 14th Ave, Denver, CO 80203
Do you have feedback on how the legislature spends your tax dollars? Would you like to provide suggestions on how the legislature prioritizes spending? Then let the JBC know what you think during their public testimony hearing. Generally speaking, the only opportunity for public comment on the budget is when the 'Long Bill' is heard in the Senate or House appropriations committees in March, after the budget has been largely crafted. The budget hearing will begin at 1:30 p.m. on the third floor of the Legislative Services Building, south across East 14th Avenue from the Capitol.
