Letter: Bustang fees should be treated as taxes

Author: Colorado Politics - January 20, 2016 - Updated: January 20, 2016


I feel that transferring highway funds collected as a “fee”  to pay for roads to a mass transit program such as Bustang makes the fee become a tax and refundable under TABOR.

Should there be a class action lawsuit on behalf of Colorado drivers to cancel the Bustang that benefits people other than those paying the auto registration fees that were raised without voter approval?
