DENVER—Today, Senate Democrats refused to stand up for Colorado taxpayers and direct funding directly to Colorado roads and bridges.
"Colorado should not have to beg the federal government for an allowance that Coloradans paid for, it's that simple," said Neville. "Democrats claim to work for the taxpayers of this state. They say they believe in increased states' rights, but only on certain issues. Their vote on this simple action shows their true colors. Democrats do not trust you to make the best decisions on how to fund our roads and solve our state's issues. They want big government to step in every step of the way, and it is clear that if at any point Democrats tell us they trust Colorado voters, we should question if their motives are purely political."
