Last week, the current Colorado Governor eagerly signed new transportation “sustainability” legislation into law. Transportation is the second largest household expense for families, seniors, young couples, the poor and disadvantaged. The Governor’s action represents a significant tax increase on already thin budgets. New “fees” created in the bill (SB21-260) will have a severe negative impact on the quality of life and finances of all Coloradans. It is especially punishing for those who struggle to make ends meet every month. Increased transportation costs punish families living in rural areas and the law shows, once again, how little the Governor cares about large portions of Colorado.
