A Colorado Tax on Nongovernmental Tolls Initiative did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Colorado as an initiated state statute or an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure sought the creation a $10 tax on each toll collected by a toll road that was not wholly owned, managed, financed or maintained by the state. It would have also specifically prohibited any refund, credit or offset of this tax.[1][2]

Background

Whether this measure would be an initiated state statute or an initiated constitutional amendment was unclear in the draft initiative. Section 1 of Article V of the Colorado Constitution requires all proposed initiatives to amend either the constitution or state law. The memo advised the proponents of the initiative that, "The proposed initiative should be revised to indicate whether it amends the Colorado constitution or the Colorado Revised Statutes and to show where in the constitution or statutes its provisions should be inserted."[1]

Supporters

  • Lisa Brumfiel, primary proponent
  • Peter Coulter, second proponent

Lisa Brumfield and Peter Coulter were also proponents for the following 2014 initiatives:

Coulter, additionally, was a proponent for Colorado No Clemency for Death Penalty by Governor Initiative (2014).
