Kerr v. Hickenlooper

Date: March 01, 2013

The Colorado Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR), requires a public referendum on tax increases and tightly limits state spending. But, the Plaintiffs in this case are challenging the measure on the grounds that it unfairly restricts the legislature from doing its job. NFIB asserts that overturning TABOR would open the floodgates for litigation against voter-enacted spending controls around the country, and undermine Colorado voters’ decision to keep government spending in check.
