Budget panel takes $2 million from state agency

DENVER — The Colorado Legislature’s budget writing committee has voted to take $2 million from a cash fund in the secretary of state’s office to help with a $1.1 billion shortfall.

Secretary of State Scott Gessler has said he planned to keep $3.5 million for his office that his predecessor had offered to lawmakers. The Denver Post reports the Joint Budget Committee voted unanimously Tuesday to add $2 million of the amount to an overall cash fund transfer bill.

Gessler told lawmakers last month that the money came from filing fees businesses paid to the office and the money would be used to help businesses. He told the Post that he saw the budget committee’s action as a partial victory because members didn’t take all the money.
