House passes budget, the first concrete step toward tax reform

House passes budget, the first concrete step toward tax reform

"We have been raised to own up to our mistakes and fix them".

The result of the legislative mistake and inability for the legislature to fix that mistake during the two-day special session this week will cost several special districts millions.

A spokesman for House Speaker Charles McCall says no agreement has been reached and that negotiations were ongoing Thursday with the governor and Republican Senate leaders. They thought the issue wasn't an emergency, wasn't well thought out or planned, and didn't think the Governor had done enough to loop them into discussions to try to broker a compromise.

With opposition mounting, Grantham called on Hickenlooper to rescind the special session, and his leadership political committee began soliciting campaign contributions accusing the governor of "toying with taxpayer dollars".

Hickenlooper added: "I strongly commend the bill sponsors for all of their efforts. Never, never agreed to anything like that". The Senate is not in session next week. It also leased state buildings to pump about $2 billion into roads, and exempted a fee paid by hospitals from counting against the state's spending limits. One of the special districts impacted by the error operates partly in Garfield County, which he represents.

Year-old Girl Raped Inside School Toilet in South Delhi
In another such incident, a nine-year-old was allegedly raped by a 31-year-old man in Central Delhi's Karol Bagh area. A four-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a school van driver in Delhi's Baba Haridass Nagar region in July.

Now, special districts, including the Regional Transportation District in Denver, stand to lose out on $4.2 million they would have received in 2018 if not for the drafting error. "This special session will be exclusively to address this one narrow correction".

The Denver Post reports that this shredding of the bill prompted lawmakers to get into a knock down, drag out battle of the blame, each side calling the other out for wasting time, opportunity and tax dollars.

That said, Guzman said Wednesday in a statement that the "Governor has made the call, and we will respect it".

Even with assurances that follow-up measures to implement the budget will not be voted on, 18 Republicans voted against the budget proposal Thursday.

"The legislature doesn't make tax policy changes inadvertently by mistake", said Democratic Majority Leader KC Becker of Boulder. But Democrats and Republicans were split on how urgently the agencies needed that taxing authority restored - and whether the Legislature had the power to do it. The rewrite mistakenly blocked certain special districts from collecting recreational pot taxes they levied before the bill took effect, The Post reported. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs.

Sibanye Gold Limited (NYSE:SBGL)
The company was able to keep return on investment at 19.10% in the last twelve months. 2,138,519 shares of the stock traded hands. Year to date is 31.55%, 32.79% over the last quarter, 20.74% for the past six months and 33.82% over the last 12 months.

"Positions are pretty entrenched now", he said.

That fed into the Republican argument that the issue wasn't an emergency.

This does not seem like a strategy for racking up legislative wins for the administration. "It's clear that the Colorado Republican Party has been infected with the same partisan obstructionism that we see from Republicans in D.C". "Is that the new normal?"

"I am a great believer in the better angels of all of us in this building". We know the handful of Republican senators who were responsible for that defeat.

He'll get another chance to do just that when lawmakers return for the regular session in January.

United Nations to shame Saudi-led bloc as Yemen child killers
U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the United Nations does not comment on leaked documents. The council will hold a debate on children and armed conflict on October 31.

On September 14, Hickenlooper announced his preferred method of resolving the situation: a special session.
