A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. So then, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
(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.
