NO on Amendment 71

edited October 2016 in Opinion

Amendment 71, the so-called "Raise the Bar" amendment designed to make it even harder for citizens to initiate statewide ballot initiatives (i.e., clean energy, rational marijuana policies, right to die) is probably the most insidious and objectionable amendment on the ballot this year. It will reverberate for decades because it takes a tremendous amount of power from the people and hands it to big corporations.

A good explanation of Amendment 71 can be found in this October 9 opinion piece from the Boulder Daily Camera:

I respectfully urge voters to read it.
