Oh interesting! Thank you so much Clyde!! Interesting though that no one corrected the email to say that Colorado voters passed a constitutional amendment…not aninitiative. I think the Colorado Department of Revenue will have an easier time implementing their law than the LCB willbecause the CO legislature gets to actually pass laws to uphold their constitution rather than just pass interpretive rules likeLCB has to do. Huge difference if it ever gets challenged on either state or federal grounds. As much as we like to think we arein the same position as CO, we are not.
