    New Study Challenges Criticisms of Colorado's Taxpayers' Bill of Rights

    03/30/2005

    At a time when sixteen states are considering similar taxpayer-rights legislation, Colorado's Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) has come under sharp scrutiny in recent months. Since 1992 TABOR has imposed strict tax and spending limits on Colorado lawmakers. In the wake of the most recent recession critics have blamed TABOR for decimating Colorado's public services, and have proposed to loosen or repeal its key tax and spending restrictions.

    The Tax Foundation has just released a new analysis by Staff Attorney Chris Atkins evaluating criticisms of TABOR, and exploring its actual impact on Colorado's finances. You can view the full analysis at:
