On September 19, 2018 the South Metro Denver Chamber, in partnership with Common Sense Roundtable, hosted their 2018 Ballot Initiative Forum at the Lone Tree Arts Center. Information regarding Propositions 109, 110, 112, and Amendment 73 were presented. We have provided the questions that were submitted by attendees during the forum, along with the campaign responses below.
Is there a possibility for the legislature to mess with the funding that would be generated by initiative 110?
Prop 110 funds are structure to be collected by the state Treasurer and deposited directly into the Highway Users Tax Fund (HUTF). Like with our gas tax dollars, this long standing approach ensures that the funds are protected from the annual general fund allocation process.
What happens if Proposition 109 and 110 both pass?
If there is a dispute over which measure is to be given effect, both propositions will be reviewed by the courts to determine if there are direct conflicts. If there are none, both will go into effect. If there are any direct conflicts, the measure that receives the most votes will prevail. Since both contain bonding authority, CDOT's ability to bond would increase by approximately $2b over what is included in Prop 110 provided the legislature makes an annual general fund transfer to CDOT. The Transportation Commission would have to review both lists of projects and determine which projects to advance where conflicts in project scopes differ.
What happens if they both fail?
This scenario keeps Colorado right where it is in funding for transportation today. SB 267 stays in place and CDOT will continue to issue COPs up to $1.5b. No new funds will be available for local entities or for multimodal projects. Colorado would continue on the same path of roadway congestion and deterioration.
What happens if only Prop 109 passes?
Since SB 1 directs that if a ballot measure is approved by the voters that does not include a new revenue source, then the Certificates of Participation included in SB267 would be eliminated and the general fund revenues identified to pay for those bonds would be returned to the general fund (approx. $100m/annually). This would leave CDOT with only $2 billion in new bonding authority and dependent on the legislature to make annual transfers from the general fund to make debt service payments. In addition, the Transportation Commission would have to review the list of projects in Prop 109 and determine which projects would not be built since Prop 109 only provides $3.5 billion for $5.6 billion worth of projects.
What happens if only Prop 110 passes?
This is the best solution for Colorado by providing a new long term sustainable funding source and provides the most certainty for our deteriorating transportation system. Funding would be shared between state, cities, counties and multimodal projects to reinvest in the systems that serve our daily mobility needs. CDOT, in collaboration with their planning partners, has identified approximately 130 projects that would be built utilizing $6 billion in bonding authority.
Does bonding such a large amount prohibit or hinder the state to bond on other projects? I recall TREX hindered any projects to be done elsewhere in the state, such as 36 highway.
Prop 110 authorizes $6 billion in bonding for the state. CDOT is working to develop a schedule of project delivery and to address all 107 project in a 10 year period. However, it is important to note that CDOT may not need to bond for the entire amount and may be able to advance projects on a pay-as-you-go basis. In addition, CDOT has been working with the construction and suppliers industry to ensure projects are scheduled to maximize program delivery.
A lot of different taxes were mentioned. Where are all the taxes going to take place? Meanwhile, are they from sales, property, income?
Amendment 73 does the following:
If approved, Colorado would go from having among the lowest income tax rates in the nation to the eighth highest – and Colorado would have the highest income tax rate in the Rocky Mountain West, higher than New Mexico, a state with a notoriously bad business environment. When other states have enacted tax increases this large, companies have located jobs and headquarters to other states.
If businesses generally support education but oppose Amendment 73, what are the general parameters that business would support?
The “No on Amendment 73” endorsers unified in their support for improving our education system in Colorado; however, they believe that changes need to be made to our foundational educational system structure before we approve a blank check with no assurance that any of these dollars will ever reach the classroom. Discussions about how to change that structure should happen first, before funding mechanisms can be applied.
The amendment 73 flyer says there would be a loss of 11,400 private sector jobs. What would be the increase in local education jobs?
Amendment 73 is being sold as a big benefit for teacher pay and new school buildings. The reality is the measure provides no guarantee that the funds will be used for those purposes. Further, there is no guarantee of improved student performance from these funds.
History demonstrates that a large percentage of new revenues will go toward administrators, overhead and the huge education bureaucracy. From 1992 to 2014, overall education spending increased 15%, while teacher pay decreased 11%.
There simply is no correlation between more spending and achievement. Not higher test scores. Not better college readiness. Not improved job preparedness.
Moreover, the property tax increase on homeowners in Amendment 73 will rob local governments of resources. The measure was written so poorly that it will force more money to schools at the expense of fire districts, library districts, and irrigation and water districts – arguably creating the potential for additional job losses.
You mentioned a structural problem in education. What is that problem?
Colorado school kids deserve solid educational opportunities. Most agree teachers need to be better compensated for their important work. Yet, while this measure seeks to elevate per-pupil funding it also means:
During the past six school years, P-12 Colorado public education staffing increased by 14,517 new jobs; of which only 33% were new teachers. At the same time, the number of students has grown by 56,015. For every 3.9 students, Colorado’s education system added one new staff member.
According to the National Education Association, Colorado currently ranks 27th in per-pupil expenditures yet we rank 43rd in percentage of spending on instruction. Most will find it interesting Colorado ranks 5th in the nation on administration costs (US Census Education Finance data).
Further clouding the massive middle class and business tax hike that are contemplated in Amendment 73 are three pieces of legislation (’04, 06, 18) already passed to bolster the public employees’ pension fund (PERA). The combined increases equate to $645 per-pupil already. There is no assurance taxes raised from Amendment 73 will not be used to backfill the limping PERA to pay down the unfunded liabilities.
Amendment 73’s consequences are too costly. It holds no guarantees for teachers or improving student educational opportunities. And, it robs our first responders of the resources necessary to keep our schools and communities safe.

On September 1, 2018, Colorado House Bill 18-1128 (“HB 1128”) went into effect. HB 1128 essentially heightens Colorado covered entities’ obligations to implement plans to protect and destroy personal identifying information (“PII”) they maintain, own or possess. HB 18-1128 creates a number of new expectations and definitions for which lawyers, and the clients they advise, must be aware. As a result of HB 1128, C.R.S. § 6-1-713(2)(b) now defines PII to mean: “a social security number; a personal identification number; a password; a pass code; an official state or government-issued driver’s license or identification card number; a government passport number; biometric data, as defined in section 6-1-716 (1)(a); an employer, student, or military identification number; or a financial transaction device, as defined in section 18-5-701(3).” HB 1128 modified the term “covered entity” in C.R.S. § 6-1-713(2)(a) to more broadly include any individual, corporation, partnership, limited liability company or any other legal or commercial entity “that maintains, owns, or licenses [PII] in the course of the person’s business, vocation, or occupation.” Each of us in Colorado, from solo practitioners to large entities, should assume that the we, or the business we operate is a “covered entity” and that we are responsible for compliance. A key point here is that the legislature did not define “maintain” making it unclear whether the intent is to include simple possession of PII (which could be broadly interpreted to include an email correspondence unread in your inbox) or PII actually curated and kept by covered entities. A court would likely look to the dictionary definition of “maintain,” which one could conservatively read to require more than passive possession. However, when developing a written policy, it may be prudent to go beyond the dictionary definition while not drafting the policy to be so inclusive that it cannot be complied with. Previously, the state’s PII definition applied to “each public and private entity . . . that uses documents during the course of business that contain [PII]”, and required that each such entity “develop a policy for the destruction or proper disposal of paper documents containing PII.” As a result of HB 1128, covered entities that maintain, own or license PII of Colorado residents must do more than merely “develop a policy for the destruction or proper disposal of paper documents containing PII.” This new definition now applies whether or not the entity is organized under Colorado law or even doing business in Colorado. Under HB 1128, each covered entity must: 1. Develop written policies for the destruction and maintenance of PII, and 2. Implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices to safeguard PII To look more closely at these two basic requirements: “[D]evelop a written policy for the destruction or proper disposal of those paper and electronic documents containing PII.” In describing the written policy, C.R.S. § 6-1-713(1) requires that the written policy must require that PII in its control or possession be destroyed, or the covered entity must arrange for the destruction of the PII when the PII is “no longer needed.” “Destruction” is defined by reference to “shredding, erasing or otherwise modifying the PII to make it unreadable or undecipherable through any means.” In addition to developing the required written policy, C.R.S. § 6-1-713.5(1), each covered entity that maintains, owns, or licenses PII “of an individual residing in [Colorado]” must: “[I]mplement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices that are appropriate to the nature of the PII and the nature and size of the business and its operations.” This clearly gives smaller businesses the right to scale their compliance – but any loss or unauthorized access to PII will likely result in greater liability to the smaller business with less access to cutting edge protection, than it would to a larger business that has the ability to allocate more funds to purchase more robust protection. The intention of the proponents of HB 18-1128 was to create a living law that is continuously updated through case law, and therefore is intentionally left broad and open to interpretation, both by covered businesses and entities, as well as by the Attorney General. A covered entity may contract with a third-party service provider to maintain PII on its behalf. This may include a 401(k) provider, a payroll company, or other third-party service provider. That does not, however, let the covered entity off the hook. C.R.S. § 6-1-713.5(2) requires that the covered entity contracting with the third-party service provider: [S]hall require that the third-party service provider implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices that are: (a) Appropriate to the nature of the [PII] disclosed to the third-party service provider; and (b) Reasonably designed to help protect the [PII] from unauthorized access, use, modification, disclosure, or destruction. Thus, the covered entity is potentially liable for breaches resulting from a third-party service provider’s action (or inaction) unless the covered entity can show that it accomplished the appropriate due diligence – and we do not know what that term means. Should each covered entity obtain a certification from each third-party service provider each year? The vague language provides some necessary latitude, but should not be interpreted as a “safe harbor” should a breach occur. Until the courts have had an opportunity to interpret the statute, best practice would be to approach this in the most conservative manner keeping the legislative intent in mind when developing policies and procedures. C.R.S. § 6-1-713(3) and § 6-1-713.5(4) provide that a covered entity that is regul breach has occurred for a period of time, it is still required to notify affected Colorado residents within thirty days of the breach. If that period does not leave sufficient time for the covered entity to conduct a good faith investigation, then notification to all Colorado residents should be made. C.R.S. § 6-1-716(2)(f) also requires the covered entity to notify the Colorado attorney general of the breach. “Notice” is broadly defined in C.R.S. § 6-1-716(1)(f) to include any of a list of, and sometimes a combination of, methods to notify customers or clients, including mail, telephone, email, posting “conspicuously” on a website or in a “major statewide media.” Notice must be made by the covered entity “in good faith, in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay” and without charge to the affected persons. C.R.S. §§ 6-1-716(2)(a.5) and -716(c). If more than 1,000 Colorado residents are involved in the data breach, C.R.S. § 6-1-716(d) requires that the covered entity “also notify, in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, all consumer reporting agencies that compile and maintain files on consumers on a nationwide basis.” As now required in C.R.S. § 6-1-716(2)(a.2), the notice must contain information about the date/dates of the breach, a description of the PII that was subject to the breach, and various methods by which the Colorado residents subject to the breach can obtain more information. Where passwords and similar access points are thought to be compromised, C.R.S. § 6-1-716(2)(a.3)(1) requires the notice also contain direction to the recipients to change passwords and other log-in credentials. Notice to the affected persons may only be delayed “if a law enforcement agency determines that the notice will impede a criminal investigation” and the agency “has notified the covered entity . . . not to send notice.” HB 1128 also added article 73 to Title 24 imposing similar requirements on Colorado governmental agencies who have and now must protect PII. All covered entities – and that generally means all of us – that maintain, use or license PII of Colorado residents should evaluate their data protection and data breach policies. Covered entities are not only entities located in Colorado or that are formed under Colorado law, but are defined without geographic limitation in C.R.S. § 6-1-102(6) – but only with respect to whether the PII being maintained relates to Colorado residents. If any covered entity (not exempt because of the federal or state law requirements found in C.R.S. § 6-1-713(3) and § 6-1-713.5(4)) do not have written policies in place, they should be implemented in order to comply with the heightened obligations. Having policies is not, however, the only answer. Appropriate procedures have to be established to maintain the security and integrity of that PII – both in house at the covered entity and at the covered entity’s third-party service providers. This is a new law, and there is much to be interpreted. Nevertheless, as set forth in the September 7, 2018, Denver Business Journal (article entitled Consumer data ‘stakes are higher’ by Andrew Dodson at Page A17), the stakes are now much higher for companies doing business with Colorado residents involving PII, and the legislation requiring “reasonable security procedures” was “written vaguely on purpose.” Whether that vagueness helps the smaller business owner to downsize some requirements, or some degree of strict liability will be applied remains to be seen. At this time there is no best practice or guidance available to entities now covered under HB 1128. With time and case law developments, the best practices will become more evident. In the meantime, according to proponents of the legislation, you should “write policies you can be proud of, and in the event of a data breach be able to demonstrate to the Attorney General that you have created policies, procedures and documents that demonstrate you took this seriously and thought through the issue.”
The struggle is real for parents raising kids in today's digital world. From endless social media channels and apps, to more serious dangers like cyberbullying and "sexting," keeping our kids safe online can feel beyond overwhelming.
Arapahoe Libraries is partnering with parents, caregivers and the community by offering a workshop on how to safely navigate the internet presented by Katie Greer, a nationally recognized expert on internet/digital safety and technology, on Thursday, October 11, 7-8:30 pm at Koelbel Library (5955 S.

Music of Ravel, Ives and Schumann Open the
Arapahoe Philharmonic’s 65th Anniversary Season
Littleton, CO – The Arapahoe Philharmonic (AP) celebrates the start of its 65th anniversary season, Symphonic Triumphs, with a program of varied works by Maurice Ravel, Charles Ives and Robert Schumann on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at Denver First Church of the Nazarene, 3800 E. Hampden Avenue, Cherry Hills Village, CO 80113. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., and is preceded by a talk with Music Director Devin Patrick Hughes at 6:45 p.m. and a Classic Children’s Corner for kids of all ages at 7:10 p.m.
The program will begin with Schumann’s spirited Rhenish Symphony. His inspiration was an enjoyable trip to the Rhineland with his wife Clara, evoking the beautiful sights along the banks and rustic dances of the region.
The second half of the program features two selections composed just years apart that could not be more different in style. American composer Charles Ives completed his four-movement A Symphony: New England Holidays in 1913. The AP will perform the second movement, Decoration Day, which was inspired by Ives hearing his father’s marching band play in an annual Decoration Day tribute. If you listen closely, you can hear parts of several recognizable band tunes of the time.
The concert will close with the Second Suite from Ravel’s ballet Daphnis and Chloé. Premiered in 1912, just a year after the completion of Decoration Day, Daphnis and Chloé is on the opposite end of the musical spectrum and representative of the impressionist movement that lasted into the early 20th century. The work is considered by many to be some of Ravel’s best writing, even being hailed as a “masterpiece for orchestra.”
Single tickets and season ticket packages, offering discounted pricing and a number of additional benefits, are available. Pricing and benefits are outlined on our website at www.arapahoe-phil.org/events/buy-tickets/.
The AP once again offers its “Pay Your Age” package for young adults age 18 to 35. This subscription offer includes four tickets that can be used to attend any of our full orchestra concerts for just the cost of the purchaser’s age. It’s priced to entice and give maximum flexibility to young classical music lovers. Some restrictions, which are outlined on our website, do apply.
