This year’s money grab has an official title: Proposition CC. The state will “ask your permission to keep refunds from the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR) to allocate towards transportation projects, public K-12 schools, and higher education,” according to KOAA.
With Colorado’s constantly-ballooning budget, it’s hard to believe the money will be well-spent. And hopefully a majority of voters will realize that, too.
“Our state budget’s up 1.4 billion dollars from last year, it’s up to 32.5 billion dollars total so I think permanently taking away our TABOR refunds won’t go over well with voters,” Michael Fields with Colorado Rising Action, a group opposing the measure, said.
Fingers crossed we won’t lose our TABOR refunds for good!
