Road repair: make it easier to travel our great state

My budget request moves forward vital projects, starting with much-needed repairs on roads across Colorado--from the Eisenhower Tunnel to the rural roads that our farmers and ranchers rely on. We're going to make it easier for Coloradans and visitors to travel our great state--accessing the ski resorts and public lands that we love--while reducing traffic and improving our vibrant, beloved main streets in the process.

Since 2019 we have invested billions of dollars into housing. We created the first-ever dedicated funding source for affordable housing. Now, voters have passed Prop 123 to dedicate hundreds of millions of dollars in the coming years. But we can't just buy our way out of this, we have to break down government barriers, expand private property rights, and reduce regulations to actually construct more housing options at a lower cost so all Coloradans can thrive.
