The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office cleared and certified Initiative 173 for the November 6 general election ballot.

The ballot measure proposes amending the state constitution regarding campaign contribution limits.

If passed, candidates in a race may accept contributions from individuals that are five times the rate authorized in the state constitution if at least one candidate loans or contributes $1 million to his or her own campaign, to a committee to support or oppose any candidate in the same election, or to any committee to influence the candidate’s own election.
