Senior citizens and big businesses would be affected under two bills that lawmakers passed yesterday.
Senate Bill 190 would eliminate part of the property tax exemptions that qualifying senior citizens get in Colorado, while House Bill 1200 would delay tax credits for Colorado’s largest businesses that operate in enterprise zones. The bills seek to help close an estimated $85 million budget gap in the state budget.
Politicians care only about government budget gaps. They sure don't seem to care about the budget gaps that old people and businesses are encountering.
