DENVER — Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018 — Governor John Hickenlooper today submitted interrogatories asking the Colorado Supreme Court to weigh in on whether the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) and Gallagher Amendment have conflicts with each other. The interaction of TABOR and Gallagher has resulted in a system in which provisions in both amendments are not working as intended and is adversely affecting local communities.
“Colorado’s local governments must be able to provide essential services,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “With clarification from the Colorado Supreme Court, we will be able to address the funding issues caused by the conflict and find a workable solution.”
