Text of measure
|“||Amendments to articles XVII, XX, and XXIV of the constitution of the state of Colorado, concerning the elimination of obsolete provisions of the state constitution.||”|
Supporters argued that Referendum G was a worthwhile effort to update the constitution by deleting language that was outdated and not essential to understanding the constitution.
Opponents argued that all provisions of the constitution have historical significance. Removing provisions may diminish the historical character of the constitution and make research of constitutional provisions and state laws more difficult.
