What would you do if you bought a $15 item with a $20 bill and the cashier refused to give you back your $5 change? Imagine the store keeps your change every time. Well, that’s exactly what the State of Colorado wants to do. They call it Prop CC and it will be on your ballot this fall. It will end the state’s spending limit, allowing politicians to spend all excess revenue not just next year, but every year. Forever.
You would never get an excess-revenue tax refund ever again, as currently required by our Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights.
Independence is of course leading the charge against it. Here’s Amy Cooke’s latest on it. https://pagetwo.

As if our Executive Vice President Amy Cooke isn’t doing enough, she’s been appointed to Colorado’s Utility Consumers’ Board, an eleven-member advisory committee housed within the state’s Office of Consumer Counsel. Let me put this in perspective for you. Amy will likely be the only one on this commission who will fight to put energy ratepayers before the anti-fracking extremists. And you think I’m lonely living in Boulder.
And if THAT’S not enough, Amy is recuperating from rotator cuff surgery from an injury she got from, wait for it, a nasty fall off her bike going downhill! And she’s trying to hold me to a half-baked promise I’d ride a bicycle in next year’s Courage Classic to benefit Children’s Hospital?? Get better soon Amy!
