“Today the Judiciary ruled in favor of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR). Opponents of TABOR had asked the federal courts to rule it unconstitutional. Arguments about whether a full trial should even begin had been appealed all the way to the US Supreme Court. That highest Court had directed the 10th Circuit located here in Denver to reconsider the case in light of more recent precedent. With today’s decision by the 10th Circuit Court, it appears that this case will be dismissed and TABOR will survive unscathed.
Your TABOR Foundation joined a group of limited government proponents to file Friend-of-the Court briefs at each step in support of TABOR. We were ably represented in that effort by the National Federation of Independent Business through its attorney, Luke Wake.
We can be grateful that the most existential threat to TABOR is gone, for now. We should be diligent that the Leftists who want to repeal such limits on the growth of governments will try again in a different fashion.
