A strong cold front will move through Southern Colorado today. It will bring much colder temperatures (especially in the afternoon), strong wind, a few rain/snow showers, and blowing dust to Southern Colorado. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
(Denver-AP) -- A ballot question designed to reduce the influence of money in politics is gathering opposition from a range of interests.
The proposed Amendment 27 would significantly reduce political contribution limits, encourage voluntary campaign spending limits, require financial disclosure by education committees and ban direct union and corporate contributions to candidates.
But several group are speaking out against it.
Colorado Democratic Party Chairman Tim Knaus says lower contribution limits would force candidates to spend more time fund-raising.
And Nathan Gorman of Protect Freedom 2002 says the proposal would leave less prosperous groups underrepresented.
Initiative sponsor Pete Maysmith says he believes the same special interests that benefit from the current campaign contribution system oppose the proposal.
