DENVER – Gov. Bill Ritter’s proposal to trim the state budget  by $318 million includes the elimination of 267 jobs and the closure of 59 beds at the Colorado Mental health Institute at Fort Logan and 32 more at a facility in Grand Junction.

    But it does not include any cuts in K-12 education thanks to Amendment 23, a constitutional requirement that forces the state to fund education at a particular level.

    Rep. Kevin Priola, R-Henderson, said the governor did what he thought was best.
