DENVER — On Thursday the Bell Policy Center, a research and advocacy organization based here that seeks to promote economic opportunity, added its voice to the rising tide of concerned politicians, safety workers, and activist groups opposing Ballot Initiative 300, Denver's so-called impound initiative, which would require police to seize the vehicles of any drivers failing to carry a valid license. Initiative 300 is an updated version of Initiative 100, which passed last year. According to Rich Jones, director of policy and research for the Bell Center, Initiative 300 is not only fiscally unsound but is racially motivated.
DENVER — A phone bank jammed with more than 30 volunteers was ringing phones off the hook earlier this week, asking residents to vote no on "impound" Initiative 300. "This would force police to do something that will cost us roughly $6 million to implement," said Carolyn Siegel from Coloradans for Safe Communities, a coalition of labor, advocacy and religious groups.
