The bill states that it is the intent of the general assembly that it will not amend, repeal, or otherwise supersede an initiated law in the Colorado revised statutes that was approved at an election after the 2016 general election for a period of 3 years from the date the law takes effect unless such amendment, repeal, or supersession is approved by a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house.
