Propositions

There will be a number of oppositions for voters to consider at the state, county, and local level on the ballot. Stay tuned for the Eagle County Democrats positions on these initiatives. In the meanwhile you can read the Colorado Blue Book, which gives an overview of the state-level propositions, including arguments for and against.

Proposition HH is a question referred to the voters by the state legislature through Senate Bill 23-303, a bill that proposes to reduce property taxes and allow the state to retain and spend excess state revenue. Voter approval is required to allow the state to retain and spend the excess state revenue.

Proposition II is a question referred to the voters by the state legislature through House Bill 23-1290. Because an estimate of revenue from nicotine taxes provided in a prior ballot information booklet was exceeded, the state is asking for voter approval to retain and spend state revenue that would otherwise need to be refunded and to maintain tax rates on nicotine products that would otherwise need to be decreased.
