ORDER OF COURT

Upon consideration of the Petition for Writ of Certiorari to the Colorado
Court of Appeals and after review of the record, briefs, and the judgment of said
Court of Appeals,
IT IS ORDERED that said Petition for Writ of Certiorari shall be, and the
same hereby is, DENIED.
JUSTICE EID WOULD GRANT as to the following issues:
Whether an involuntary bridge surcharge levied on vehicle registration is a
tax or a TABOR-exempt fee when the vehicle does not cross bridges funded
by the surcharge.

Whether a TABOR-exempt enterprise must be operated as a self-supporting
business and the transactions between the enterprise and customers must be
market exchanges taking place in a competitive, arms-length manner.
Whether the General Assembly’s definition of “grant” in section 24-77102(7), C.R.S. (2014), correctly interpreted the purpose and meaning of
TABOR.
