Colorado Union Contributions Repeal Amendment (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The Colorado Union Contributions Repeal Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Colorado as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have repealed language added to the Colorado Constitution by a 2008 ballot measure, Amendment 54, that defined unions as “sole source” government contractors and prohibited political contributions from them.
The measure was part of Senate Concurrent Resolution 1, a piece of legislation that proposed three repeals of constitutional language that were previously struck down by legal rulings as unconstitutional.
Path to the ballot
Two-thirds of each chamber of the Colorado General Assembly must vote affirmatively for a proposed amendment in order for it to go on the statewide ballot for potential voter ratification.
