I am pleased to report that two of my bills have already passed successfully through committee with unanimous and bipartisan support and passed a successful floor vote this morning. As the legislative process progresses, I want to make myself available to you to answer any questions or concerns you might have about these or other bills which legislators will be deliberating this session.

As I continue to work on my Advanced Industries Workforce Development bill, which will provide funding for Advanced Industries internships, I also want to remind local business owners about the Advanced Industries Accelerator Program grant. Applications for this grant are due quarterly. The Early Stage Capital and Retention grant applications “are meant to help Colorado keep and grow our companies. Grants up to $250,000 will be awarded (with exceptions), with matching funds of 2-to-1.”
