A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
The state would be able to use about $25 million a year in sales-tax revenue to finance tourism promotion under a bill that cleared a House committee.
The catch is that all retailers would have to give up about one-third of the fee they receive from the state for collecting and submitting tax revenue.
Some retailers say that's an additional tax, but plan supporters say a small investment could bring potentially huge returns.
Voters in 1993 rejected continuing a tax to promote tourism and officials estimate Colorado's share of the national tourism market has slipped.
