Sometimes referred to as the "People's Constitution," the Colorado Constitution was ratified in 1876, earning Colorado the nickname "The Centennial State". Since then, the Constitution has never been rewritten, but has been amended over 152 times. This fact has established the Colorado Constitution as one of the most easily amended state constitutions in the country. From its early days as a tri-lingual document written in English, Spanish and German, to the controversial Tax Payer's Bill of Rights (TABOR), Colorado's top lawyers and historians unravel the unintended consequences to the state's constitution in this episode of Colorado Experience.
