Case Information

The Colorado legislature passed resolution 21-1008 requesting the Colorado Supreme Court rule on the constitutionality of Senate Bill 21-247. The Colorado Supreme Court ruled the bill was unconstitutional on the grounds the General Assembly lacks the authority to require the independent commission interpret the constitution in a particular way or take any action beyond what is outlined under Article V section 44 and 48.4 of the state constitution.
