Wording of the proposed ballot initiative

Special to the Daily

The original version of the wording for the proposed ballot initiative:

Amendment Eight of the Colorado Constitution directs that the net proceeds of every state-supervised lottery game operated under the authority of Article XVIII Section 2, be allocated to Great Outdoors Colorado Program, the Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado State Parks.

Shall Amendment 8 be amended such that 50 percent of the net proceeds of the lottery’s revenues be allocated to provide financial assistance to the citizens of this state to enable such citizens to attend post-secondary educational institutions located within the state, and 50 percent shall remain as currently allocated under Amendment 8?

The excess after such allocations from such net proceeds from the lottery would be appropriated to:

1) Capital outlay projects for K-12 educational facilities; and

2) Early learning programs and after-school programs.

Such appropriation of funds to support improvements and enhancements for educational programs and purposes and such net proceeds shall be used to supplement, not supplant, non-lottery educational resources for education programs and purposes.

The state lottery authorized in this section shall be implemented and administered uniformly throughout the state in such a manner as the legislature, by general law, deems appropriate.
