Plaintiffs/appellants Martin G. Bolt, Sr., et al. (the taxpayers), and defendant/cross-appellant the Arapahoe County School District Number Six, also known as the Littleton Public Schools (the school district), appeal an order of the Arapahoe County District Court (the district court) in Bolt, et al. v. Arapahoe County School District Number Six, No. 93CV185 (Dec. 13, 1993), which involved the taxpayers challenge, under Colorado Constitution Article X, Section 20 (Amendment 1), to mill levy increases made by the school district in 1992 for use in 1993. The district court held that: (1) the school district's .771 mills increase in the bond redemption levy did not violate Amendment 1 and that in fact Amendment 1 impaired the bondholders' contracts contrary to the contract clause of the United States Constitution, Article I, section 10(1); (2) the school district's 1.445 mills increase in the abatements and refunds levy was consistent with Amendment 1; and (3) the 2.000 mills levied by the school district for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101 to 12213 (Supp. 1993) (ADA), and the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 2641 to 2655 (1988 & Supp. 1993) (AHERA), was in violation of Amendment 1.
