TABOR is legislation/act/amendment which takes budgeting and revenue generation from the hands of the legislature and produces a "ratchet down" effect, limiting budgets to population growth and inflation in any given year. Sound good? Well, Colorado amended their constitution in 1992 to include TABOR, and has thus dragged Colorado down from a really nice place to live to next to last and last in quality of life and public service attributes. As usual, Civitas and Pope and Americans for Prosperity are behind this crap. Colorado had to amend the constitution to get relief from TABOR just to survive. They announced this yesterday in Raleigh. TABOR has been rejected in California and various other states.
This is one in which you should get everyone you know to look up Taxpayer Bill of Rights in Wikipedia and then contact every person they know to sound the alarm.
This was one of the reasons the Republicans, Pope, Elshelman, Luddy and all the other rich folks paid to dominate the legislature. If this gets in, we will be another 20 years in decline before we are rid of it. It is an automatic destruction machine, taking all discretion from governor, legislature and courts. And it has come to a legislature near you - be very afraid.
