Paul Teske on Amendment 71

Photo of Paul TeskeDean Paul Teske is quoted in “Amendment 71 made it harder to get initiatives on the ballot — what happens now?” that ran in The Denver Post on Dec. 5, 2016. “They probably head toward statutory changes now more, other things being equal,” said Paul Teske “But, those things aren’t going to be as baked in, because the legislature can go and change them.”

On the other hand, most of the things — good and bad — that already made it into the constitution under the old rules are likely here to stay.

“It probably does bake it in and solidify the past in a way that isn’t the happiest thing when you’ve got a state constitution that’s the third-largest in the country,” Teske said. “We have kind of a ridiculous number of things in the constitution that shouldn’t be there.”
