Signature Requirement for Constitutional Initiatives

Bill Text: HCR14-1002

Date Introduced: April 14, 2014

Sponsors: 4

Status: Postponed indefinitely

HCR 1002 would have placed a referred measure on the fall ballot to double the number of signatures required for constitutional amendments proposed by initiative process, thereby making the process more difficult for ordinary Coloradans and leaving it in place for the wealthiest interests. The bill also required a geographic distribution of signatures that would have allowed one part of the state to act as gatekeeper when the rest of the state wants to see something on the ballot.
