Colorado’s marijuana legalization amendment will get the most attention on Election Day but another ballot measure in the tightly challenged swing state is one addressing corporate campaign contributions.

The proposal, Amendment 65, seeks to limit campaign contributions and spending. According to the Denver Post, “The amendment instructs Coloradans elected to Congress to propose and support a constitutional amendment that would allow federal and state lawmakers to limit campaign contributions and spending. It also instructs state legislatures to ratify such an amendment.”

The Daily Camera said voting for the measure “will send a message to Colorado elected leaders, but we're not convinced sending messages should be enshrined in a state constitution.”

The measure carries no force of law and would address issues in the near term regarding the proliferation of money in politics, the Post noted.
