DENVER (AP) - Bankers and union members, Democrats and Republicans are teaming up to oppose three tax-slashing measures on November's ballot.
Opponents met in front of empty seats at the Invesco Field football stadium Monday to illustrate 73,000 jobs they say will be lost if the measures pass. Supporters say the measures will create more private jobs. Opponents have raised more than $6 million to fight the initiatives, compared with supporters' $14,000.
The proposals are Proposition 101, which would reduce automobile and telecommunications taxes; Amendment 60, which would cancel voter-approved tax-limit overrides; and Amendment 61, which would limit municipal borrowing and bar state debt.
