Supporting job creation and a healthy economy
Throughout each legislative session the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Metro Denver EDC advocate for the business community to ensure that Colorado continues to be a great place to do business by testifying on bills, working with legislative leaders, convening diverse groups on issues that impact our state, and negotiating for our positions on key issues. On Jan. 11 the 71st Colorado General Assembly convened.
To support a strong economy and job growth, the Chamber will always consider policy that impacts its pillars: infrastructure, health and wellness, and education. Key priorities during the 2017 session include transportation funding, construction defects reform/affordable housing, and a renewed focus on energy through the newly created Select Committee on Energy and the Environment.

The Metro Denver EDC also participates on the Economic Development Council of Colorado's Public Policy Committee, which consists of economic developers throughout the state working together to support and advance legislation conducive to a healthy business climate.
