Colorado Senate Bill 09-108, known as FASTER (Funding Advancements for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery Act of 2009) has collected $1.4 Billion in “fees” over six years. The most recent State Auditors report found:
- Deficiencies in half of their processes for collecting the “fees.”
- CDOT (Colorado Department Of Transportation) also needs to improve its oversight and management.
- CDOT, Colorado Dept of Revenue, and Colorado Judicial all agreed with the recommendations presented.
More money + bigger government control = major problems.
The TABOR Foundation replied, “we told you so.”

Are they better now?
