Segment 2: We look at TABOR II, a so-called taxpayer’s bill of rights that will be on the ballot this November. We’ll speak with Republican County Commissioner Steve Johnson of Colorado about the dire reasons that state repealed a TABOR initiative, and with Rep. Jim Martin, District 18 (Bangor, Veazie, Orono) about the potential impact here.
