Policy Priorities

The Colorado Business Roundtable

Improving the Business Climate in Colorado

Prioritize a Competitiveness Agenda

Sustainable economic growth can be maximized when we achieve a proper regulatory balance and support fiscal policies that promote innovation, job attraction, and retention.  Colorado competes for jobs with other states and globally, and we need to be mindful of how we are positioned in the wider marketplace for future residents and employers.

Reimagine Colorado’s Workforce

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.

Invest in a Future-Forward Infrastructure

A future-forward infrastructure system is critical to unleashing Colorado’s long-term competitive potential. Colorado must focus on issues such as mobility, energy, and broadband/5G because they are the backbone to support a strong economy, business growth, and quality of life.

Road to Recovery


A global pandemic and corresponding economic crisis have brought about a time of severe disruption. Business and our way of life have been transformed. While we are faced with unprecedented challenges, we have also been presented with unique opportunities to shape our future with purpose.

The Colorado Business Roundtable and Common Sense Institute have provided a forum to formulate and influence public policy through collaboration and research in response to the pandemic’s economic realities.

Thought leaders from diverse industry backgrounds across Colorado convened in the summer and fall of 2020 to identify three pillars for a sustainable, growing, and global economy that will position Colorado for long-term economic success.

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.
