Colo. Republicans try to block tax break repeal

DENVER – Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter’s plan to eliminate about a dozen tax breaks to balance the state budget is off to a rocky start.

Rep. Bob Gardner, a Republican from Colorado Springs, tried to block the tax breaks with a filibuster. Democrats retaliated by ruling him absent, forcing him to leave the committee and return to the House floor while Democrats on the committee were excused.

Democrats later relented and the committee meeting resumed after Republicans were promised a full hearing later Wednesday.
