TABOR Debate Frustration

By  | 

More disagreement today at the state Capitol over proposals to loosen the state's strict tax-and-spending limits.

But the debate was more about whether state lawmakers should be discussing Referenda C and D rather than the merits of the proposals, which will go before voters in November.

House Minority Leader Joe Stengel says supporters of the two measures are using state-funded committee meetings to paint a dire picture of the state's economy to garner support.

But state Senator Steve Johnson, a fellow Republican from Fort Collins, says conservatives are being QUOTE "hypersensitive" about the measures. He says the spending measures could greatly affect the future of the state.
