Like several other states, Colorado will have a healthcare reform-related question on the November ballot. Voters will be able to decide whether or not they want to legally challenge provisions of the law.
Similar to other states’ ballot measures, it would pass a law that prevents the federal government from enacting a health insurance plan mandate–one of the main provisions of the bill, intended to reduce the cost of health insurance by spreading the cost among more (typically healthy) people.
It remains to be seen if Amendment 63 is successful. Even if it passes, the federal law may still dominate state law. However, conservative groups are happy that the Colorado health insurance measure received enough signatures to reach the ballot.
