WHY COLORADO LATINOS SHOULD DEFEND THE TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS

Today, the unemployment rate among Colorado Hispanics is 5.1%, according to numbers released earlier this year. Meanwhile, nationally, Hispanics are seeing unemployment at historic lows. Hispanic homeownership rates are on the rise and last year the Census Bureau reported that the median income for Hispanic households is climbing.

To ensure that we can further increase these economic gains, we must demand that lawmakers in Denver pledge to be good stewards of our taxpayer dollars. Instead of gutting TABOR, they should double down on the policies that have served Colorado well over the years to encourage innovation and growth.
