Default ANS Funding

Colorado's ANS program leaves a lot to be desired, and it looks like it will potentially get much worse with the loss of funding.

They need to lobby to have the CPW included in the general fund. From what I understand they get very little if any funding from the state budget. The CPW budget is comprised of the funds from the lottery, revenue from licenses and revenue from the parks.

CPW should get some of the taxes from the marijuana industry considering people buy weed then go to the parks and smoke it!!!

Here is a thread with budget information for CPW: https://www.coloradofisherman.com/for...-forecast.html

there is an idea floating around about a way of funding CPW that I think would do the job. that is passing a tire tax in Co of $1.00 per tire. if you have 4 tires on your car or truck it would cost you $4.00 per year. most people in Co have at least 8 tires some have 14 to 20 tires, at that kind of income for the CPW they could cut a lot of fees to be more affordable. they need to find a way before we cant afford to hunt, fish, or camo.

Why are we thinking of new ways to tax people? This is not a money problem its a how we choose to deal with it problem. Most every lake I fish in TX has zebra mussels and the water intakes are good and the fishing is as good as ever and you can launch a boat whenever you want anywhere you want.

This is a manufactured problem, thats all it ever was. I can't believe how many people fall for this nonsense.

Ed,
Are you saying the zebra mussel fear is propaganda?

Does it harm the fisheries or the man made water systems and structure?

If it is mainly the latter, I can understand why they would want you to believe the zebra mussel is such a problem. Water rights are a BIG deal and BIG money.

Glad I'm no longer stuck in Co as a boat owner. Oklahoma is like Texas - pay your launch fee and you're free to launch as you please day or night year round. I haven't seen the clean, drain and dry message anywhere here. A different world down here. Colorado will continue to fee the outdoorsman to death while reducing access. Before you bash me, know this - I'm a Colorado native. I've watched this happen for a long time. I truly feel sorry for boaters in Colorado and hope cpw figures out a way to keep the gates open. I remember launching until ice up at the mile and many other privliges that no longer exist.
