This was a significant area of concern even before the nationwide financial crisis became apparent in the fall of 2008, and it remains my most pressing issue. On a fundamental level, we can't adequately address key areas such as education, transportation, the environment, health care and human services without sufficient revenue. Also, many Coloradans face dire consequences as a result of the recent recession, including the possible loss of employment and difficulties paying mortgages or other bills. We need wise action on the economy in 2011 and beyond.
