Opponents rally to oppose tax ballot measures

Bankers and unions, Democrats and Republicans are joining together to oppose three tax measures on November's ballot.

Opponents plan to meet in front of empty seats Invesco Field on Monday to illustrate 73,000 jobs they say will be lost if the measures pass.

They've raised more than $6 million to fight the measures. Supporters have raised $14,000.

The measures 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.

A similar rally was held in Colorado Springs last week.
