LIBRE-CO Praises Passage of Proposition 116

Denver, CO – The LIBRE Initiative – Colorado, an organization committed to empowering the Latino community, praised the passage of Proposition 116 – a proposition to decrease the state income tax from 4.63% to 4.55%.

Angel Merlos, coalitions director for The LIBRE Initiative – CO – said:

Today was an important victory for Colorado taxpayers, including Colorado Latino families, who will now be able to keep more of their hard-earned money to save, spend, and invest as they see fit. By approving Proposition 116, Coloradans sent a clear message to lawmakers in support of tax relief and are now better positioned to overcome the financial challenges we are all facing because of the global pandemic.”


The LIBRE Initiative – Colorado supported Proposition 116 in the form of digital advertisements, phone calls and canvassing in both English and Spanish. The LIBRE Initiative is a non-partisan, non-profit grassroots organization that advances the principles and values of a free and open society to empower the U.S. Hispanic community so it can thrive and contribute to a more prosperous America.
