Colorado Ballot Issues

Below is a Summary and voting Recommendations by the Colorado GOP and the Republican

Women of Montezuma County

Amendment D: - Twenty-Third Judicial District Amendment Requires the Governor to designate judges from the 18th judicial district to serve in the newly created 23rd judicial district, bypassing the usual nominating commission process that constituents get to use to help select their own judges. Those who want constituents to maintain the right to help select their own judges may wish to vote no; those who want a smooth, quick transition to help cases move through the criminal system faster after the creation of a new judicial district may wish to vote yes RWMC recommends: VOTE NO. Judges should be elected, not assigned by the governor. Amendment E: Homestead Exemption to Surviving Spouses of U.S. Armed Forces Members and Veterans Amendment Extends an existing homestead exemption for disabled veterans to Gold Star spouses of deceased military personnel and certain veterans and reduces taxes for some families of those who served our nation. COGOP and RWMC Recommends: Vote YES Amendment F: - Charitable Gaming Amendment Allows the operators and managers of charitable gaming activities to be paid and allows the legislature todetermine how long an organization must exists to obtain a charitable gaming license. Those who oppose all forms of gambling and do not believe it is healthy for society may wish to vote no; those who believe the government should not regulate how charitable organizations fundraise may wish to vote yes. RWMC Recommendation: Vote NO. These rules do not need to be changed Prop FF: - Reduce Income Tax Deduction Amounts to Fund School Meals Program Measure Takes away the state income tax deduction for certain charitable givers; creates and funds a government program to pay for school lunches for all children in Colorado public schools. Raises taxes by $100,000,000. COGOP and RWMC Recommends: VOTE NO. School lunches are already available to those that need them, this would increase our taxes.


Prop GG: Include Income Tax Effects in Initiative Ballot Language Measure Requires the state ballot to include a fiscal table written by potentially biased government staffers for any citizen ballot initiative. This is designed to hurt conservative ballot measures, and all Republican legislators have opposed it.


COGOP and RWMC Recommends VOTE NO


Prop 121: State Income Tax Rate Reduction Initiative

Reduces the state income tax rate from 4.55% to 4.40%.


COGOP and RWMC: VOTE YES. any tax reduction is good, but do you wonder what else will the government do to make up the lost revenue????


Prop 122: Decriminalization and Regulated Access Program for Certain Psychedelic Plants and Fungi Initiative

Legalizes psychedelic mushrooms, despite the fact that Colorado is currently ravaged by drug use, is #1 in the nation for cocaine use, and is #2 in the nation for increase in fentanyl overdose deaths.


COGOP and RWMC recommends VOTE NO. NO. NO.


Prop 123: - Dedicates Revenues to Fund Housing Projects Initiative

Takes away $300 million of the TABOR refund away each year from taxpayers to allow the government to fund housing projects, without any guarantee that the money will stay in the housing project after one year. Fails to solve Colorado's housing crisis or get to the core problems causing the crisis.


COGOP and RWMC Recommends: Vote NO. NO. NO.


Prop 124,125and 126: Liquor related Issues

Increases the number of liquor store licenses, allows grocery stores to sell wine, allows delivery of alcohol .

RWMC Recommends: Vote NO. Our Local Alcohol stores are strong supporters of conservative values, and do not need to lose business. Alcohol consumption does not need to be increased.
