01:11 PM -- 2j. Permanently enjoined laws on ballot issue petition circulators

01:11 PM --
Kate Meyer, OLLS, testified before the Committee concerning the state's hybrid compensation scheme regarding ballot issue petition circulars. She explained there is a split in the Circuit courts on this issue and that, at present, Colorado's law cannot be enforced. Ms. Meyer and the Committee agreed that the issue warrants more examination, including consideration of whether the Committee wanted to only take up issues that the Supreme Court has decided are constitutional or unconstitutional. The issue was tabled until the next meeting. 16 SRC_Memo2J.pdf16 SRC_Memo2J.pdf
