Choice in Energy Question on Agenda

A state question that could appear on your November ballot goes before the state title board this week for a hearing. The "Consumer Choice in Energy" is the title of one proposed ballot initiative that will be heard on Wednesday, April 3rd.

If the bill passes, it would keep state and local governments from prohibiting the use of specific energy sources. You would not be able to be told what kind of stove you can buy and own. It would mean there would not be a ban on gas stoves, hot water heating systems, and cooling systems.

A hearing is scheduled for April 3rd at 9:00 AM with the Title Board.

The information from the Colorado Secretary of State's website on the hearing is as follows:
