Things are moving forward in Colorado to get the State Supreme Court to weigh-in on how the state should address issues raised by Citizens United.
Gov. Bill Ritter has asked the Colorado Supreme Court to weigh in on a campaign-finance dispute over contribution limits.
Ritter wants clarification in the aftermath of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that allows businesses and unions to directly spend unlimited amounts of money to produce and run their own campaign ads.
Colorado’s Constitution forbids that under a ballot measure voters approved in 2002.
“We want to find out what part of our constitution is unconstitutional. The easiest way is for the governor to ask the state Supreme Court,” [House Majority Leader] Weissmann said.
