While Colorado’s economy is still on the upswing, state economists are waiting to see what comes out of Washington, D.C., in the weeks and months ahead, and how federal tax reform legislation will affect Colorado’s coffers. But the news looks good for possible funding bumps for transportation, one of the major issues left behind in the 2017 legislative session.

Henry Sobanet, the governor’s go-to on the budget, is widely regarded as the best numbers guy in the state when it comes to the budget and to complex financial issues affecting the state budget. Sobanet works equally well with Republicans, having served as budget director for Gov. Bill Owens a decade ago, and in the same role for the past seven years for Gov. John Hickenlooper.

While pundits and pollsters will be studying the 2016 national election for months to come, it is safe to say that Americans clearly want a government that listens to their needs and delivers results. Coloradans are no different. The Hickenlooper administration prioritized “good government” from the start, and this election underscores how important it is to continue and expand this work. We believe good government is a non-partisan idea that focuses on delivering measurable, cost-effective results for our customers by using data and the best thinking across sectors.

DENVER — Is it over yet, you ask? No, go back to bed, bless your heart. But I dreamed last night that (Insert your favorite candidate here - yes even if they aren't truly on the ballot this race) won the election and led us all to 12 years of peace and prosperity, you say (term limits were apparently overcome in your dream). It was magical you say. Like we said, go back to bed. Sweet dreams.

DENVER — Good morning and Happy Friday. While Hillary Clinton cut ad buys in Colorado in the midst of a huge boost in the state's polls, Donald Trump isn't done with the state, at least not yet. But he may be soon, depending on what happens in the next couple of weeks, according to sources. He will return to the Centennial State for campaign events in Pueblo and Grand Junction Tuesday, as the Statesman's Ernest Luning broke the news. Read on for more in Colorado politics including the recent Mike Coffman "controversy," as the Democratic Party continues to strategically attempt to lash him and U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton — the two Republicans with the most on the line this election cycle — to Trump's campaign. Have a great weekend on the campaign trail whether you're the trailblazer or sitting back in the voters' wagon train.
