Please consider the following comment from Compass Colorado as you cover state Rep. Andy Kerr’s attempt to subvert Colorado’s constitution and the will of Colorado voters.
“Andy Kerr’s deliberate attack on Colorado’s constitution is a slap in the face to the voters who approved the Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights. Andy Kerr is so committed to raising taxes, he’s willing to subvert democracy here in Colorado to do it.” – Tyler Q. Houlton, President of Compass Colorado
Attempt to topple TABOR on tap
By Tim Hoover
Inside a federal courtroom today, enemies of Colorado’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights will be poised to attempt the constitutional-law equivalent of a Hail Mary pass.
Backers of a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of TABOR will be at a hearing, trying to survive the state’s motion to dismiss their suit.
The hearing, all observers agree, marks the first hurdle in what could be a historic moment in constitutional law.
Most observers also say the lawsuit is a long shot.
