From The Boulder Daily Camera: "What it means: If approved, Amendment 52 would direct money raised by severance taxes on the oil and gas industry into a transportation fund set aside for road improvements throughout the state. The first priority would be relieving congestion along the Interstate 70 corridor.
"What supporters say: The amendment is a way to fund new transportation projects with no new taxes and no new tolls.
"What opponents say: The measure focuses too much on I-70, and adjusting severance tax funds away from water projects could cause problems in the future."
