Colorado Supreme Court rules that the Taxpayer Bill of Rights is a single subject for referendum

The Supreme Court of the State of Colorado ruled on Monday that an initiative to repeal the Taxpayer Bill of Rights (“TABOR”) is a single subject that can be voted on in one referendum.

The case arose when the Title Board declined “to set a title for proposed Initiative 2019-2020 #3”, which would be asking people in the state of Colorado to repeal TABOR. The Title Board “declined to set a title for this initiative because it concluded that the initiative did not constitute a single subject as required by the Colorado Constitution.”

The Supreme Court of the State of Colorado reversed, holding that the initiative “constitutes a single subject.” The Court reversed the Title Board’s decision and returned “the initiative to the Title Board for the purpose of setting a title, ballot title, and submission clause.”
