Senate having a COW on tax referral

The Senate is in Committee of the Whole (the "COW" in the title of this post) and is considering HB2015, referral of the sales tax hike to the ballot and imposition of TABOR.

Tedski is reporting that the Reps were successful in peeling off Richard Miranda, so this may pass.

This seems to be more a case of railroading - they're suppressing debate and questions, and there have been a lot of whispered conversations (apparently to keep Senators toeing the line) - but I've used the "railroad" metaphor before and don't want to be too repetitive.

HB2015 passes COW.
