2018 Legislative Recap

The Chamber identified key priorities for the 2018 legislative session, from expanding the uses for reclaimed water to promoting more workforce development opportunities for youth. Perhaps the biggest win came during the last week of the session, when legislators reached a compromise on Colorado PERA, the state employee’s retirement program – an issue that we engaged in with a diverse group of stakeholders before and during the session. Take a look at the key bills for business.

What’s next? 

Transportation funding continues to be a focus for the business community, and Chamber President and CEO Kelly Brough called for more funding at State of the State in May. Later that month, the statewide coalition the Chamber has been a member of for a number of years agreed to bring a 0.62 percent sales tax question to the ballot in November. Stay tuned – we’ll break down all the key ballot items for business.
