Denver voters reject sick leave bill

Denver voters on Tuesday shot down a proposal to require employers to offer paid sick leave after weeks of divisive debate that pitted business owners against their workers.

Known as Initiative 300, the paid sick leave mandate was on a ballot initiative on which 104,217 people voted. Of those, 36 percent, or 37,498 voters said yes, while 64 percent, or 66,719, rejected the measure.
