Sales tax plans moving forward
By Marc Stewart
A statewide coalition that includes the Metro Denver of Chamber of Commerce is moving forward with plans to file ballot initiatives to raise the state sales tax in order to raise more money to pay for Colorado road projects.
The four proposed sales tax hikes would vary, ranging from 0.5 percent to 1 percent, depending on financial projections expected next month. Only one of the proposals is expected to be pursued after those forecasts are released.
