Gov. John Hickenlooper’s plans are certainly bold and revealing. The governor addressed the impression of the Gallagher Modification. This modification has been a thorn in state authorities’s aspect since inception as a result of it limits authorities and authorities doesn’t like limitations. Unsaid is the Taxpayer’s Invoice of Rights, which additionally limits authorities spending however can also be the proverbial thorn within the aspect.
Relaxation assured, authorities is engaged on circumventing and/or repealing each, however the taxpaying voter is a big impediment of their endeavors. One of many circumventions is the imposition of the car registration “payment,” which is mostly a tax. One other is altering the Division of Highways to Division of Transportation, which encompasses greater than roads and bridges.
Learn between the strains, people. Authorities abhors restrictions and but we, the voters, are the one line if protection in opposition to limitless tax and spend.
