Denver, CO – Colorado’s Title Board today voted unanimously, (3-0) to deny the next steps to a full repeal of the Tax Payer Bill of Rights (TABOR). The Title Board cited Colorado’s rule that initiatives must cover only a single subject, and ruled this proposal was too broad, as the basis for the denial. While this decision can be viewed as a temporary win for Coloradans, the proponents of a repeal measure will almost certainly bring this issue back for consideration in the coming months.
“The same people who believe they know better than Coloradans on tax increases have now telegraphed their next target – and it’s TABOR,” said Adam Johnson, communications director of Compass Colorado. “If we’ve learned anything about how this crowd operates, it’s that this was merely a trial balloon, and it will be back with a vengeance.”
