RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
NPR's business news starts with ballot measures and the economy.
(Soundbite of music)
MONTAGNE: Voters weighed in on a number of economic issues yesterday. In Colorado, voters rejected a trio of measures that would have cut taxes and limited government borrowing. Both political parties in the state opposed the initiatives. The voters in Colorado also rejected a state amendment that would have challenged the new federal health care law. But voters in Arizona and Oklahoma supported similar measures against the health care bill.
