The DBA and CBA Support “Raising the Bar” on Colorado Amendments
The DBA and CBA are supporting the proposed initiative Amendment 71 in its effort to protect the Colorado Constitution by raising the bar on amending it. Amendment 71 would require signatures from all 35 state senate districts to place an amendment on the Colorado ballot, giving the rural parts of our state a say in amending the constitution. We encourage all members to read more about the issue and support the Amendment with us.
