(The Center Square) - Two of Colorado's most influential conservative advocacy groups say they will join forces on ballot measure language to reduce the state's gas tax in 2022.

Americans for Prosperity-Colorado (AFP-CO) and Colorado Rising State Action announced the plan in a statement on Monday in response to a Democratic-backed proposal to hike fees on gasoline to fund the state's transportation system.
