Colorado lawmakers to vote on tax breaks

Colorado lawmakers are scheduled to take up Gov. Bill Ritter's proposal to eliminate about a dozen tax breaks to balance the state budget.

House Republican Minority Leader Mike May, R-Parker, calls the proposals a taxpayer-funded bailout of the Democrats' overspending in the previous year.

Ritter says Colorado can no longer afford to offer tax breaks while the state is struggling to balance the budget. The bills are scheduled to be heard Wednesday in the House Finance Committee.
