Overwhelming Support for Tax Deduction for Educators Bill Today is a day that the Colorado State Legislature can say that they stand with the educators of Colorado and acknowledge their dedication to our students. On a 9-2 vote, with Democrats Representative Mike Foote and Representative KC Becker as the no votes, HB 1104 passed the Finance Committee and moves to the Appropriations Committee. “This may only be a minimal showing of gratitude towards our educators, but any help we can give them is necessary,” stated Representative Navarro. “This bill was meant to be a bipartisan showing of how both parties can come together for Colorado educators and that the dedication to their students has not, and will not go unnoticed.” During the committee hearing there was much public testimony in support of the bill and none against it. The no votes that came from the committee members were from two Democrat lawmakers, Representative Mike Foote and KC Becker. Both questioned the need for the bill stating that they did not believe it really helped educators and questioned why it was necessary. However, HB 1104 proved to be valuable to the other nine members that voted yes. HB 1104, Educator’s Tax Deduction Bill, was passed in a bipartisan fashion, and the fact that it is moving forward shows a commitment on the part of the Colorado State Legislature to teachers and kids.
