Living in the World of TABOR

The Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights, or “TABOR” is a set of constitutional provisions approved by Colorado voters in 1992 which limits revenue growth for state and local governments and requires that any tax increase in any state or local government (counties, cities, towns, school and/or special districts )be approved by the voters of the affected government.

It was authored by Douglas Bruce and during its 24 years of existence, has led to passionate arguments about its intended and unintended consequences, accompanied by continuing controversy about its author. 

Because  the effects of TABOR impact every level of government, any and all discussions regarding public budgeting and finance revitalize the debate regarding its pros and cons.

 Adding to interest in TABOR are strongly held beliefs regarding the function and role of government…. and, just in case you hadn’t noticed, we are in a major election cycle.

Please join us for an informative look at TABOR in 2016.
