A proposed growth limitation constitutional amendment to submit to Colorado voters in 2018 was found to not meet the state's single-subject requirement by the Secretary of State's title review board Wednesday, Dec. 7. The backer of the proposed ballot measure, Daniel Hayes of Golden, has seven days to file a motion for a rehearing and submit a revised measure to address the board's objection. That centered around Hayes' inclusion of a sentence that reads, "At least 30 percent of the housing subject to the limitation shall be affordable housing and affordable senior housing."

In Northern Colorado, water is life for our farmers, ranchers, and cities. Unfortunately, government regulation and red tape has limited the available water, harming the economy and Colorado families. The story in Northern Colorado goes something like this. The region is a breadbasket, contributing significantly to the world’s agricultural bounty. The area is also a great place to live, which is why Weld County has, for instance, grown at a clip three times faster than the national average in the first part of this decade. All these crops, animals, and people living in a semiarid climate demand a lot of water. There’s no shortage of liquid gold flowing through the rivers in the region, but there’s simply no way to store the water.
