006. Property tax impacts on local communities after 35 years of Gallagher Amendment policies
If you own or are planning to own property in Colorado, listen in on this extended episode of Law Talk Colorado as news anchor Angeline Roles interviews Reeves Brown of Building A Better Colorado who explains the 1982 Gallagher Amendment to Colorado's state Constitution and the unforeseen consequences of policies driven by the Amendment over the decades since. Brown, formerly with Club 20 (a coalition of western Colorado counties that, as a group, give voice to rural communities when it comes to legislative issues), presents specific examples of how the Amendment has, is, and will hit rural Colorado specifically. The good news is, there are groups such as Building A Better Colorado actively pursuing solutions. "We have to muster the courage to deal with Gallagher [Amendment] proactively," Brown insists, adding that the need to solve it reaches beyond partisan agendas, citing numerous examples of bi-partisan agreement.
