Colorado

Below are five articles about local measures proposing a moratorium or permanent ban on fracking in cities across Colorado. Four of these measures were on the ballot on November 5, 2013 and one, a City of Loveland Two Year Fracking Suspension Initiative, is awaiting a court case decision and may or may not be put on a later special election ballot.

Of the four on the ballot, 3 were approved and 1 is currently too close to call.

There were also sales tax increases for recreational marijuana on the ballot in the cities of Denver and Boulder and a marijuana occupation tax in the town of Eagle, which were on the ballot in concert with the proposed state-wide measure seeking a excise and sales tax on all recreational marijuana, Proposition AA. All three local measures and the state measure were approved.

In eleven counties, voters voted on a resolution requiring their respective county commissions "to Pursue the Creation of a 51st State" in concert with the other counties seeking to succeed. According to the current, unofficial vote count, 6 counties rejected the "51st state initiative," while five approved it. The counties in which this question was before voters on November 5 were:

Defeatedd Weld
Defeatedd Logan
Defeatedd Sedgwick
Approveda Phillips
Approveda Washington
Approveda Yuma
Defeatedd Elbert
Defeatedd Lincoln
Approveda Kit Carson
Approveda Cheyenne
Defeatedd Moffat
