Senate Resolution 20, The Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR)

Senate Resolution 20, The Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR),  is flawed legislation that would amend the Georgia State Constitution to limit the growth of state revenues and expenditures to a formula of population plus government inflation growth. Colorado, the only state to implement TABOR, has since suspended it because it contributed to systemic underfunding of education, healthcare, and transportation.

Senate Resolution 20 makes the budget and legislators less accountable, is a threat to short- and long-term economic recovery, and could have negative consequences for Georgia citizens and communities.
