The initial goal of the movement to Stop the Shakedowns is to pass the following ballot initiative in the State of Colorado on the 2018 ballot.

 

The Proposition:

Be it enacted by the people of the state of Colorado:

SECTION 1.  Declaration of the people of the state of Colorado.

  • A conflict of interest exists when any entity of government enforces a law and at the same time receives the financial benefit via the activities of enforcement. These enforcement activities have created a mistrust of our law enforcement entities that must be corrected in order to restore a more peaceful and trusting relationship between the citizens of the state of Colorado and our enforcement entities.

  • Some jurisdictions in our state routinely take advantage of laws strictly for the purpose of forcibly taking funds from the people for their own use. It is common practice for some regulatory entities within the state to fine businesses because they receive the benefit of the funds generated by these fines, forfeitures or other financial penalties.

  • The people of the state of Colorado hereby assert that it is time for a change to this system which removes this conflict of interest and grows a more trusting relationship between the people and our government.

SECTION 2. In Colorado Revised Statutes, 8-43-306, repeal (2) as follows:

  • Any government entity, court or jurisdiction shall clearly notify all persons ordered to pay fines, forfeitures or other financial penalties of this section immediately following any assessment of any financial penalty.
