DALLAS — Three ballot initiatives that would drastically curtail the ability of Colorado state agencies and local governments to issue debt are winning little support from voters, according to the first public polling on the issue.

None of the three ballot measures — known as amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 — enjoyed more than 12% support in the poll conducted by Survey USA for the Denver Post and KUSA 9News. The ballot measures have raised a good deal of anxiety in the municipal bond industry because of the impact they would have on the ability of the state and its localities to finance public infrastructure.
