Americans for Prosperity – Colorado State Director Dustin Zvonek released the following statement on hearing reports that Amendment 66 has been overwhelmingly defeated:
“We congratulate Coloradans for having the common sense to reject this unnecessary and unjustified tax grab. Passing Amendment 66 would have gravely wounded the state’s economy and business climate, while rewarding a reform-resistant education system with an un-earned windfall. This outcome reaffirms our sense, coming off the recalls, that arrogant overreach by the governor and other liberals is creating a significant backlash across the state of Colorado. Hopefully the governor and other leading liberals will take this as a clear message that Coloradans aren’t ready to see this great state Californianized. The debate over Amendment 66 erased any doubt that we have a typical tax-and-spend liberal in Gov. John Hickenlooper.”
