The Colorado Chamber Releases Annual Legislative Overview for 2019 Session


Every year after legislative session, the Colorado Chamber of Commerce releases an annual report on the organization’s role in the legislative session. This year’s end-of-session overview was released on Friday, May 24th, which details the crucial victories and challenges the business community faced at Colorado’s capitol this year.

With both legislative chambers and the governor’s office controlled by the Democratic Party for the first time since 2013 along with a heavy focus on business-related issues at the capitol, the Colorado Chamber’s lobby team had to adapt to navigate this new environment in 2019. Despite this challenging new political landscape, the Chamber worked with both sides of the aisle and achieved results on behalf of its members and the broader business community.

This report details the major bills that the Colorado Chamber worked on this legislative session, from labor and employment related bills like paid family leave, to energy and environmental legislation, to changes in tax law and health care insurance.
