Skico: No on Referendum A

After careful consideration, the Aspen Skiing Co. has decided to publicly oppose Referendum A, a state ballot proposal that would allocate money for water infrastructure projects. The proposal creates blank-check authority for financing when a lack of funds is not a barrier to building new storage. It stands to burden Coloradoans with a $4 billion bill, yet it doesn’t identify specific projects. And perhaps most troubling, it rekindles intrastate conflict because it provides no explicit protection for Western Slope water resources. Better solutions, such as conservation and improvements to existing infrastructure, are non-divisive and represent better policy for all of Colorado. Pat O’Donnell, president & CEODavid Bellack, senior vice president
