#47 – Election Year Polis Ploys

It’s classic Election Year Polis. He’s relaxing several taxes for a year, an election year, to gain favor. In today’s instance, the fee concerns our mental health professionals. These health care workers are a key part of our community and deserve any support we can give them. Unfortunately, HB22-1299 is another election year ploy that works to cover the cost of various boards that regulate mental heath professionals and reduce other licensing fees but ONLY for the next fiscal year. We need tax reform in our state that begins by calling fees what they are unapproved TAXES and getting them to the people of Colorado for a vote.
