Protecting Property Rights in Colorado - Colorado Farm Bureau

PROPERTY RIGHTS

Colorado Farm Bureau protects and strengthens private property rights in Colorado. Our Initiative 108 will amend the state constitution to require just compensation when a state or government action diminishes the fair market value of private property.

 

Protects Everyone
Small businesses, homeowners, farmers, ranchers, urbanites, and suburbanites. Our amendment is broad and encompasses the entire state. ALL Coloradans will enjoy improved protections from government action under the proposal.
Strengthens Current Law
The Colorado Constitution provides for compensation when government seizes private property. But courts have not applied the standard equally. This measure will clarify the intent of the Constitution and push judges to enforce these protections equally.

Improves Government
The measure will improve government's accountability to citizens and make elected officials more responsive to voters. The negative impacts of government action will be harder to ignore, creating stronger protections for communities across the state.

The Solution to a Problem

The Colorado Constitution protects property owners when the government takes or damages private property. But the courts have not been applying the standard equally. This measure will level the playing field and require just compensation for property owners when the government causes economic damage to private property. No longer will the state or local governments be able to take action that limits activity and diminishes private property value without having to compensate the owner. This initiative will strengthen current standards, improve government, and remove iniquities created over the years, by judges who fail to apply Constitutional provisions equally.
