"Take it to a Vote of the People"



The Colorado Constitution requires that the people vote on tax increases. Senator Lundberg brought eight amendments to the Senate, one for each of the "dirty dozen" bills, to refer the bill to a vote of the people. Every one of them was defeated in March, 2010.

Internet Sales Tax





February 10, 2010. State Senator Kevin Lundberg argues against HB-1193, the internet sales tax. This is the bill that caused Amazon.com to cut all of its affiliate business with Colorado businesses. This bill is not a tax increase as much as it is a tax enforcement bill. If it is ever fully implemented it will significantly change interstate sales tax policy. Senator Lundberg's discussion at the mic was primarily concerning the dysfunctional nature of this bill. After all of the inevitable court challenges and a probable wholesale lack of enforcement, it is doubtful that this bill will ever be fully implemented.
