TABOR, the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights is an amendment to the state constitution passed in 1992 which requires state and
local government to seek voter approval in order to raise taxes and also limits growth in state spending to population
growth plus inflation. If the state collects more revenues than it is allowed to spend, then it must return the surplus to
the taxpayers. (Phone: Hearing / Web: Reading) this, do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or
