Ballot initiative to eliminate Colorado TABOR law can proceed, Supreme Court rules
The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday that a group wanting to eliminate Colorado’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) can proceed with a proposed ballot initiative in 2020. The state’s high court ruled in a 5-2 opinion that the state Title Board should not have rejected the proposed initiative from the Colorado Fiscal Institute, saying that the proposed ballot question did indeed constitute one single subject – a requirement of ballot initiatives under the state Constitution.

The amendment requires tax increases, the issuance of bonds and increases in spending to go to statewide voters. The back-and-forth over the positive and negatives of the law have been hashed out for years without concrete conclusions. But the majority’s opinion, delivered by Justice Richard L. Gabriel, concluded that the proposed initiative, Initiative #3, indeed constituted a single subject.
