Amendment 54 To Be Heard By Colorado Supreme Court

The Colorado Supreme Court will decide whether Amendment 54, “The Clean Government Act,” is constitutional.
Passed as a ballot initiative in 2008, Amendment 54 bans political donations from people who have received sole-source government contracts. A group of nonprofit leaders filed a lawsuit in Denver District Court contesting the amendment’s constitutionality, arguing it violated the right to free speech.
On July 17, Judge Catherine Lemon granted a preliminary injunction that stopped the amendment from taking effect until an appellate court ruled on it. On Aug. 21, the Colorado Supreme Court agreed to review the case.
