Please join 350 Colorado in actively opposing Amendment 71 (A71), which will appear on Colorado’s 2016 ballot.  Amendment 71,  is backed by million of dollars from the oil and gas industry and their advocates, in large part because it is intended to stall any future attempts to place ballot initiatives like #75 (local control over oil and gas) and #78 (2500’ setbacks) on the ballot. These special interests have amassed over $4 million to convince Coloradans to surrender their right to initiate important changes to Colorado law.

Click here to sign up to help defeat amendment 71 and protect grassroots ballot initiative campaigns from wealthy special interests.

Often referred to as the “anti-initiative initiative”, A71 would place prohibitive petition restrictions on citizen groups seeking to empower voters to change Colorado law in the public interest—effectively denying access to the ballot to all but the wealthiest industry groups and politicians.  By requiring that 2% of voters in every one of Colorado’s 35 senatorial districts sign a petition in order to place an initiative on the ballot, it would allow any district in Colorado to veto an initiative before voters even have a chance to weigh in.  Additionally it would require a 55% supermajority of voters in order to adopt the proposed change to the Colorado Constitution.
