DENVER (KDVR) – This year marks the 30th year of the taxpayer's bill of rights, or TABOR program. The amendment limits the amount the state government can spend each year and requires taxpayers be refunded when there's a surplus in the budget. Thirty years after it began, some lawmakers are calling for those funds to be used to pay educators across Colorado. 'The idea is completely out of step with what Coloradans want and Coloradans have spoken on this issue over and over over, over the past several years,' Ben Murrey, from the Independence Institute said.
