Amendment 78: Colorado voters will decide if lawmakers should have more oversight of state spending

The Colorado Sun: A measure on Colorado’s November ballot asks voters to change the way the state approves spending money from the federal government, legal settlements and other non-state sources.

Amendment 78 would require the Colorado General Assembly to determine how the state uses what it defines as “custodial money,” funding the state receives from outside sources for specific purposes, like federal grant money and private donations.

Supporters say the measure would bring greater accountability and transparency to state spending. But opponents see it as little more than a partisan ploy meant to hobble a Democratic administration.
