Policy Priorities

Economic Development

Colorado Business Roundtable supports policies that encourage job attraction and retention, attainable housing, living wage jobs, and a quality health care system that is affordable and transparent.

Smart Regulation

Businesses in Colorado thrive when we achieve a proper regulatory balance, and COBRT supports policies and legislation that streamlines or reduces cumbersome regulations.

Tax Reform

Colorado Business Roundtable supports unwinding the unnecessary complexity of Colorado’s sales tax system that stifles continued growth of Colorado’s economy.  We support a tax rate and code that is competitive, fair and easy to navigate.

Workforce Development

Building a “tomorrow-ready” workforce requires modernizing training pipelines, embracing technology, and strengthening post-secondary education options so Colorado’s youth and working adults can secure fulfilling jobs and sustainable career pathways.

Transportation Funding and Infrastructure

Colorado needs a statewide solution to transportation funding that includes transit options to create a well-functioning, modern transportation network to allow Colorado to maintain a regional, national, and global competitive economic position.


Companies need access to an educated and trained workforce to compete globally. We need to reform our broken visa system, fix our legal immigration, and remove the magnet that attracts illegal immigration.

The Colorado Business Roundtable’s Business Bound initiative is a series of interactive workshops geared towards of aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners, and young professionals from diverse communities who want to increase the skills and knowledge needed to advance their business and professional goals. Aligning with our mission is to elevate the people who help build and maintain a robust economy, the Business Bound program is committed to provide information and resources through training led by some of Colorado’s most respected business leaders.

The Financial Literacy for Business presentation will provide an overview of basic financial literacy that will help attendees succeed with decision-making and competency in all areas of business. The presentation includes financial terminology and concepts, initial review of financial statements, and review of taxes for small businesses.

David Eddy, Boeing

Throughout all my work in Colorado, a common thread is my passion for economic public policy and opportunity. When businesses flourish and produce jobs, families thrive. That’s why I’m so honored to be the President of the Colorado Business Roundtable. I’m eager to amplify our pro-business mission and tell the story that business is good.
