Overview

COVID-19 is overwhelming Colorado’s economy, and TABOR (Tax Payer Bill of Rights) is making it worse. TABOR is an amendment which was approved by voters in1992 and limits the amount of revenue the State of Colorado can retain and spend. It has prevented progress with environmental policy in the state. Transportation funding, carbon pricing, enforcing environmental rules – are all impacted.

During the panel, fiscal policy expert Carol Hedges of The Colorado Fiscal Institute will explain the far-reaching effects of the TABOR amendment. We will hear about the many ways this amendment is hindering Colorado’s progress toward growing our clean energy economy and providing a healthy, low-carbon future. You’ll also learn about Fair Tax Colorado (Initiative #271), which may be on the November ballot, and would be a progressive step.

We hope you will join us to learn more of TABOR’s impacts and how to take action!
