In a 7-0 decision, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled today that the State Title Board incorrectly gave a green light to Initiative 2020-21 #16, an unprecedented measure that will criminalize historic farming and ranching practices across Colorado.

The Title Board must decide if a proposed initiative consists of just one subject and, if it does, set a fair and accurate ballot title.

The Court held that Initiative #16 contained multiple subject and, given its complexity, could mislead voters when they cast their ballots. The Court vacated the title and remanded to the Board with instructions to return the Initiative to its proponents for lack of jurisdiction because the single subject requirement was not satisfied.
