Elected officials rarely like to overturn initiatives or referendums – there’s a perception that if you counter the voters, you’ll get bounced out of offic the next time around. Well, guess what? In Colorado, the effects of a citizen-approved bill almost exactly like Tim Eyman’s Initiative 1033 were so godawful that the state legislature overturned it.
Yes, that’s right, this thing is so bad that brought together a divided house to overturn a vote by the public. That is really bad! And there’s no reason we have to get to that point – just vote No on 1033!
