Colorado and the Citizens United aftermath

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.

FOXNews reports:

“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.
