DENVER (AP) - Colorado lawmakers, firefighters, school officials and children's organizations are gathering to speak out against three tax-limiting initiatives on the November ballot.

Tuesday's rally at the State Capitol is being organized by opponents from every child matters and Tennyson Center for Children. They say the initiatives will be harmful to Colorado children if they are passed.

Natalie Menten, a spokeswoman for the initiatives, says the opponents are desperate and using children as a shield.

Proposition 101 would reduce automobile and telecommunications taxes, Amendment 60 would cancel voter-approved tax-limit overrides and Amendment 61 would limit municipal borrowing and bar state debt.

    This might be a bad time for the government to operate within their budget. DO NOT increase taxes when ever they fill like it. We as citizens of the state of Colorado can not just keep barrowing money to live above our normal income before it will start hurting each month.
