The Colorado Petitions Initiative, also known as Initiative 13, was on the November 5, 1996 ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have extended the power to petition to all registered voters of all local governments. It also would have limited initiative ballot titles to 100 words and the annual number of newly enacted laws that governments may exclude for possible referendum. Additionally, standards for review of filed petitions would have been established.[1]
