The Colorado State Budget Study: An Evaluation with Proposals for Improvement.
March, Michael S.
Although Colorado's present budget system has protected the state from deficit spending, it has not kept up with the additional management requirements caused by post-World-War-II developments. The problems with the current system focus on the roles of the general assembly and the governor as well as on the areas of the institutional budgetary process, long-range planning, budgetary confusion and lack of control, accountability, and program evaluation. The suggested principles on which to base improvement of the budgetary process and the suggestions for implementation of reform focus on these problem areas while laying emphasis on improved relations between the governor and the general assembly and on strengthening the institutional budgeting process.
