Chaffee County voters were of the same mind as the rest of the state as they voted down Proposition CC Tuesday, with Chaffee County voting 42.41 percent (3,457) for and 57.59 percent (4,694) against, while the state voted 44.22 percent (540,732) for and 55.78 percent (682,034) against, as of 10 p.m. Tuesday, as listed by the Colorado Secretary of State website.
Proposition CC would have removed the revenue limits for state collected taxes set by the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. TABOR currently requires the state to refund any monies collected over a designated limit.
Chaffee turned down Proposition DD, 45.86 percent (3,720) for and 54.14 percent (4,391) against, while at the state level, it was too close to call, 49.92 percent (608,668) for and 50.08 percent (610,634) against.
Proposition DD would have decriminalized sports gambling statewide, with a tax revenue to fund state water projects.
