TABOR Special Session Requested

One of the reasons bounced around for repealing TABOR, the Tax Payer’s Bill of Rights is to make it easier to fund state projects, like road repair. State Rep. Kimmi Lewis says they’ve had many opportunities to do that without dipping into taxpayer money.

Recently, you might recall the story that Democrat lawmakers asked Governor Jared Polis for a special session for TABOR. Polis has stated that he would like some GOP backing before approving it and as of this writing, there was none.

TABOR was adopted in 1992. It protects taxpayers by requiring something to go to the vote of the people before taxes can be raised.
