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

Our education system is the direct pipeline to our future workforce and is vital to Colorado’s overall ability to attract and retain companies. Employers are struggling to find talent with the right skill set ready to enter the workforce without significant onboarding, remedial work, or upskilling.

Colorado needs to continue to prioritize creating a pipeline and cultivating individuals to fill the highly skilled jobs our diverse economy demands.

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.

Immigration

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.

COBRT has received the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Donor Advised Fund Grant to hire an Immigration Project Manager to coordinate research, advocacy and education activities among COBRT’s membership and the business community.

The Boeing Vision is an expression of our company’s purpose and values, designed to inspire and focus all employees on a shared future and to reaffirm that, together, we can meet the challenges that lie ahead. That’s why our work with Colorado Business Roundtable is so important. Our business imperative which is to ‘Deliver Superior Value to Customers, Employees, Shareholders, Communities and Partners’ aligns very well with the Colorado Business Roundtable stated purpose. Together we understand that our ultimate business success is intertwined with the success of our larger community here in Colorado.

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.

Debbie Brown, COBRT
