RSCC to Hold Hearing On TABOR

(Denver) On October 23, the Republican Study Committee of Colorado (RSCC) will host a hearing on Colorado’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) with many of the leading experts, including Dr. Barry Poulson (CU and Independence Institute), Douglas Bruce (author of TABOR and tax-reducation advocate), and Jonathan Williams (director of the Tax and Fiscal Policy Task Force for the American Legislative Exchange Council).

Discussion topics will include TABOR’s potential role in Colorado’s economic recovery, the constitutional nature of the measure, the significant benefits it accords the people of Colorado, and a report on the legislature’s Commission on Long-Term Fiscal Stability.

“TABOR has been good for the citizens of Colorado”, said RSCC Chairman, Senator Kevin Lundberg. “This hearing should put those facts on the table and they should help inform members of the legislature for the session that starts next January.

The RSCC currently has 29 legislative members who are dedicated to a limited and Constitutional role for civil government, free markets and free commerce.

The hearing is open to the public, and will be held at the State Capitol in the Old Supreme Court Chambers. The morning session will take place from 9:00 – 12:00, with the afternoon session from 1:00 – 4:00.

Republican Study Committee of Colorado

According to their website, the “Republican Study Committee of Colorado (RSCC) is a voluntary association of elected Colorado legislators that formulates, supports, and communicates legislative actions and positions consistent with its vision and Declaration of Principles. Modeled after the Republican Study Committee of the U.S. Congress, the RSCC provides long range planning and continuity between legislative sessions, helps identify and prioritize content on issues supported by the RSCC, fosters better coordination with groups that support Republican core issues, and increases the potential for national and state-to-state sharing and coordination of legislative information.”

The following video provides information about the RSCC:

In the second paragraph of their “Declaration of Principles,” “Members of the Republican Study Committee of Colorado [state that they] agree with the national Republican Study Committee in [their] dedication to a limited and Constitutional role for civil government, a strong national defense, the protection of individual and property rights, and the preservation of traditional family values.”

The RSCC is on Twitter at RSCColorado, and I was pleased to learn through an update today that “RSCC members are joining the Patrick Henry Caucus this week” [link added].

Maybe there’s hope for the Republican Party in Colorado after all.
