Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee are considering a massive new tax increase, SB 188. SB 188 is a 0.32% income tax increase on almost every worker in the State of Colorado and a crushing new mandate for small businesses.
We still have time to make it known that this unconstitutional tax increase violates TABOR and puts thousands of Colorado small businesses at risk.
Call Democrat Senators on the Senate Finance Committee NOW and tell them to vote NO on Senate Bill 188:
Senator Lois Court: 303-866-4861
Senator Pete Lee: 303-866-6364
Senator Julie Gonzales: 303-866-4862
Senator Nancy Todd: 303-866-3432
Senate Bill 188 violates TABOR by calling a 0.32% income tax increase a “fee.” This will devastate Colorado’s small businesses and create a giant new billion dollar bureaucracy.
Just yesterday, the Colorado Chamber of Commerce released a list of 65+ business organizations that are against Senate Bill 188, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Association, the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, and the Colorado Farm Bureau.
Please a take moment to contact your state legislators and the Democrats listed above. Tell them to vote NO on SB 188.
Chairman, Colorado Republican Committee
