Anti-tax groups rally at Colorado Capitol

DENVER — Anti-tax groups and Republican legislative leaders are encouraging lawmakers to look for more budget cuts instead of raising taxes.

About 100 people attended a rally at the Capitol to make their point, shouting “spend less now.”

House Speaker Frank McNulty, a Republican from Highlands Ranch, said the GOP is targeting a proposal by state Sen. Rollie Heath to ask voters to raise Colorado’s income and sales tax rates to pay for public schools. Republican lawmakers plan to introduce a resolution opposing the plan, but it isn’t expected to pass the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Business leaders were also invited to attend the rally but it was mostly tea party activists who showed up.
