Budget writer says there are dozens of undisclosed funds in Colorado state government

CBS4 (Denver): After former Gov. John Hickenlooper came under fire for how he spent money from a little-known account in his office, CBS4 has learned there are similar accounts throughout state government that hold millions of taxpayer dollars.

The money in the accounts comes from sources like federal dollars and legal settlements, departments don’t have to disclose it to the legislature. Sen. Dominick Moreno plans to change that.

The Democrat representing Adams County introduced a bill to identify all the accounts, how much money is in them and how it’s being spent.
