Gaming, Lottery, & Racing 


The Lopez Administration will ensure that the Colorado Department of Revenue is transparent in how the revenue from these three activities are being allocated and that the people of Colorado have a clear understanding on how the money is being spent.  These activities were approved by the voters because a promise was made by the State that the revenue was going to enhance the quality of life for all Coloradans. 


I am a strong proponent of “promises made – promises kept”.  I will remind you that sports betting was approved by the Colorado voters in 2019 to fund state water projects.  Water projects are vital to the future of rural Colorado and so it is vital that the revenue be allocated to rural Colorado and not the urban corridor. 


As the population continues to grow in Colorado the revenue will continue to grow, and we must ensure that the money is being used correctly and eliminate all the fraud, waste and abuse that is occurring within these revenue streams.
