Tax not: Ballot proposals to be pulled in Colorado

We have talked (some might say: ad nauseum) about the tax proposals pushed by the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute. Alas, we may have nothing to talk about starting Monday, besides a separate $1.6 billion tax hike proposed for the ballot by state Sen. Rollie Heath, D-Boulder.

Marijo Rymer, executive director of The ARC of Colorado, spoke Saturday at a Colorado Democrats “Budget Listening Tour” stop in Denver.

“I am one of the two proponents of the revenue measures that are being proposed by the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute,” said Rymer in the video above. “Carol Hedges [director of the CFPI] and I are the two citizen proponents.”

“The proposals, we’ve tested six this time around - actually we’ve tested 13 this year - but, we’ve tested six to see what kind of a ballot title would be possible. The measures that we proposed - that we will be withdrawing, on Monday - would call for a graduated income tax in Colorado. We currently have a flat income tax…”

Ernest Luning of The Colorado Statesman tweeted similar information on Saturday, with other details…

“ColoFiscPolicyInst will withdraw graduated tax proposals on Monday due to promised opposition and 46 percent support in polling…” he wrote.
