Fiscal Responsibility from Colorado’s GOP Governor

Bill Owens shows some fiscal leadership:

Gov. Bill Owens, once touted in conservative Republican circles as presidential material, teamed with Democrats last spring in drawing up the proposals that will ask voters to give up as much as $3.7 billion in tax refunds over the next five years. This from a politician who used to tout the state constitutional amendment that limits how much Colorado governments can tax and spend – the very amendment that would essentially be put on hold if the twin ballot measures pass November 1.
