No on Amendment 71

  Amendment 71 benefits special interests with financial backing while shutting out average Colorado citizens from the initiative process. It is predominately funded and promoted by the oil and gas industry. Corporations and special interests hungry for more political control are trying to rig our democracy. If the amendment passes, it will become almost impossible for citizens to put ballot initiatives on many issues including education, healthcare, taxes, and protecting the ... Full Story

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change
