What are the limits of Home Rule?

Although going to Home Rule gives local municipalities more freedom, some laws and constitutions must still be followed:

• Federal and state constitutions still apply as they provide provisions and protections to residents

• Federal and state laws that address matters that are more of statewide or national concern still apply

• Other national and state tax-related laws such as the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) and the Gallagher Amendment still apply
