The Colorado Senate is seeking to strip grassroots organizations and Colorado citizens of our rights to use one of our most effective political tools, the ballot initiative. How are they doing this? Through a sneaky reform of the ballot initiative rules, SCR11-001.
If SCR11-001 passes, government and special interest groups win and we lose our power over government . The vote to pass this out of committee is on Monday, February 14, 2011 at 1:30pm. You must act NOW to tell them to vote NO on this infringement of grassroots and voters Constitutional rights.
SCR11-001 changes these two rules to make it almost impossible to get a ballot initiative going and will strip Colorado grassroots organizations and Colorado citizens of one of their most effective political tools.
Our own elected officials suddenly feel 51% of the voters vote isn't enough?
YOU, the grassroots political activist and Colorado voter can do something about this now! You only have to call/email FIVE Senators to tell them to vote NO on SCR11-001 and/or come to the Capitol on Monday, February 14th, to have your voice heard!
