Colorado: Preserve Our Right to the Initiative Process

House Concurrent Resolution 1002 (HCR-1002), a bad bill that sought to make it nearly impossible to gain ballot access via volunteer efforts in Colorado, was defeated in the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs committee.

Colorado has used the citizen's initiative process to protect animals from cruelties such as banning the baiting of bears, and prohibiting spring bear hunts and the use of steel leghold traps. Animal advocates often turn to this tool after other means of legislative reform have been exhausted, allowing voters to consider issues in a democratic fashion, and providing an important check and balance on representative government.

Thank you for helping stop this effort to weaken Colorado's citizen initiative process!
