Backers of initiatives claim voter guide biased

The battle over three tax-cutting proposals on the Colorado ballot in November is spreading to a voter's guide written by legislative staffers.

Proponents of the measures have sent angry e-mails to the Legislative Council denouncing the analysis of the proposals' fiscal impact. They have accused the council, a nonpartisan agency, of bias against the ballot measures.

The council writes the so-called "Blue Book," a voter guide that explains initiatives and referred measures on the ballot and is required to include comments from supporters and opponents. It's mailed to voters before every election.

A committee of lawmakers is set to meet Wednesday to consider the book's wording.
