Local business leaders, community leaders, and elected officials are speaking out against Amendment 60, 61 and Proposition 101.

A community rally was held Wednesday morning at the Pioneer Museum, Southside Gazebo area in downtown Colorado Springs.

Attorney General John Suthers was among the speakers who voiced his strong opposition.

"Make no mistake about it folks. These three proposals are not the wire of advocates of limited government, they are the work of advocate fiscal anarchy," said Attorney General John Suthers.

District 11's Superintendent says the measure will have a crippling effect on public education not only in the Pikes Peak Region, but in classrooms across Colorado.

"If passed, significantly less money will be available to educate our children," said Dr. Nick Gledich.

As for the other side, 11 News spoke with the campaign coordinator of a group called, Colorado Tax Reforms that supports these ballot initiatives. Natalie Menten says the measures will provide tax relief, save Colorado and protect the future of our children.
