Anti-tax group avoids Colorado hearing

DENVER – An anti-tax group that backed three unsuccessful amendments to limit government spending in Colorado did not show up to a hearing Tuesday to consider whether the group broke state law.

The complaint against Active Citizens Together accuses the group of improperly avoiding Colorado reporting requirements. The state requires groups that spend or raise more than $200 to push for or against a ballot measure to register their activity.

An administrative law judge heard the complaint and is expected to decide whether Active Citizens Together was a so-called “issue committee” or not. The group could be fined if the judge rules the group acted improperly.

All three tax-cutting measures were rejected by Colorado voters last month.
