Chief Denver District Court judge Jeffrey Bayless rejected the Colorado Legislature's request for a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction that would prevent governor Bill Owens from rejecting portions of the state's budget bill. Legislators claim that Owens overstepped his boundaries by vetoing headnotes in the bill, but the governor said he did so because the headnotes were written in language that constituted appropriations. The lawsuit was filed in response to vetoed headnotes in the current fiscal 2003 budget, as well as anticipated vetoes for the 5 billion dollar fiscal 2004 budget.
