Joint Budget Committee. At the November 2022 general
election, Colorado voters approved proposition FF. Proposition FF
created the healthy school meals for all programs (program) and increased
taxes to pay for the program.
The bill creates the healthy school meals for all program general
fund exempt account (account). The department of revenue will deposit
the revenue resulting from the tax increase in proposition FF into the
account. The department of education (department) will use the tax
revenue in the account to implement the program. To the extent there is
not enough money in the account for the department to implement the
program, the department may expend money from the general fund for
amounts appropriated for the program.
The bill also allows for expenditures in excess of appropriations
from the fund for limited purposes and clarifies how the appropriations
made for the program will be shown in the annual general appropriations
Appropriations from the account are excluded from the amount
that is used to calculate the statutory general fund reserve, and the
unrestricted balance in the account at the end of a fiscal year is excluded
from state surplus.
