About the message:

This mailer from Americans for Prosperity Colorado Issue Committe urges voters to support Proposition 116, which would cut the state income tax rate, and Proposition 117, which would require voter approval for many fee increases. AFP says increasing fees is a way for lawmakers to "sneak around" the Taxpayers Bill of Rights and that taxes should be cut.
