We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. -- Winston Churchill

Again, the case for CO HB 1288

Posted by Joshua Culling - April 20, 2009

Colorado Rep. BJ Nikkel (R-Berthoud) and Sen. Michael Knopp (R-Littleton) have an op-ed in Saturday's Coloradan that makes the case for HB 1288, the Colorado Taxpayer Transparency Act.

This legislation recently passed the House and is headed to the Senate. Similar legislation, SB 57, would have created a transparency database for public schools, and passed the Senate in February on a 26-8 vote. I would expect the same Senators who voted for school transparency will support HB 1288.
