DENVER — A bill that would create a one-day exemption from sales tax for back-to-school shopping was introduced by a Colorado lawmaker Tuesday.
Democrat Dan Pabon, the Colorado assistant majority leader, introduced a bill that would help Colorado families by exempting them from sales tax for one day on back-to-school purchases like school supplies, clothing and sports equipment, said a release from the Colorado General Assembly House Democrats on Tuesday.
The bill was introduced the same day as Rep. Clarice Navarro-Ratzlaff’s proposal for a bill that gives a one-day exemption from sales tax on gun purchases.
“My bill helps Colorado families reduce the cost of back to school shopping,” said Pabon. “While we are focused on making sure families have the school supplies they need, my Republican colleagues are focused on solutions in search of problems and retreading divisive issues.”
