Health overhaul question headed to Colo. ballot

DENVER — Coloradans will get to weigh in on the health care overhaul this fall with a ballot measure that attempts to block the government from requiring people to have health insurance.

The Colorado Secretary of State today announced that backers of the ballot initiative collected the required number of signatures for inclusion on this fall’s ballot. Amendment 63 was pushed by conservative groups who feel the new health insurance mandate is an overreach.

The measure is seen as largely symbolic because federal law generally trumps state law. It’s similar to one overwhelmingly approved in Missouri earlier this month.

Colorado has also joined other states in a pending lawsuit over the health insurance requirement.
