Colorado Blueprint: build a business friendly environment

After we took office three years ago we launched a strategy to be a thoughtful and supportive partner with the business community. We reached out and built relationships with people in 14 regions from around the state, and based on what we heard, we designed a Colorado Blueprint that focused on six core objectives:
  1. Build a business friendly environment
  2. Increase access to capital
  3. Educate and train the workforce of tomorrow
  4. Retain, grow, recruit companies
  5. Cultivate innovation & technology
  6. Create a stronger Colorado brand.
This past year we launched the Rural Economic Development Grant Program, and are in the process of awarding $3 million to our rural communities. We launched the Advanced Industries Accelerator Program making seed capital available to start-up companies in aerospace, biosciences, energy and tech. We created a unified brand logo, which is almost universally loved. 117 of Colorado's companies are already using it.

Regulatory impact statement on all new legislation

In the days ahead, I would like to see if we could look at adding a regulatory impact statement or something like a regulatory impact statement to new legislation. Just as we require a fiscal note for every new bill that estimates the costs to state government, we could also include an estimation of the cost to businesses of additional regulations. We also hope that every bill you consider passing will be viewed through the lens of its impact on our economic growth. This doesn't mean we compromise our standards or put our land, air or water at risk, but it does mean that we'll keep a fierce and even relentless focus on jobs.
