Fiscal Analysts: Total Price Tag of Dems’ Dirty Dozen Tax Hikes = $337 Million+

The dirty dozen tax hike bills scheduled to be rammed through Colorado’s Senate Finance Committee tomorrow? Legislative analysts released fiscal notes for 11 of the 12 bills this afternoon — they estimate a total net tax increase of $20.4 million for the rest of the current fiscal year (through June 30, 2010), and a total net tax increase of more than $337 million between now and the end of FY 2011-12.
