Will taxes become more popular in Colorado?

Posted By Chris Howes, Wednesday, May 24, 2017
The Colorado General Assembly found a compromise on a number of topics during the 2017 session. The most notable being the Rubik’s Cube of transportation and hospital funding, known as the “Hospital Provider Fee.” At the beginning of the session, Republicans swore up and down they would stand for lower taxes and refuse moving this fee into an enterprise fund. By May 10, three Republican senators had changed their tunes and voted to fund rural hospitals in their districts with the Democrats’ plan. Will this every spill over into support for even more taxes in the future? Doubtful, but a scathing opinion piece from the executive director of the anti-tax Independence Institute makes for interesting reading on the topic.
