The choices you make center NFIB lobbying positions in Denver
You should have received your Colorado State Member Ballot by now. It’s important to vote.
Unique among business associations and other groups, the lobbying positions NFIB takes in Denver and in Washington D.C. are based on what its small-business-owning members say is important to their ability to own, operate, and grow their enterprises.
Since its early history, NFIB’s work on policy issues has been determined through a one-member, one-vote balloting process of its membership, which is why state and federal policymakers recognize and respect NFIB as the true Voice of Small Business.
The Second Regular Session of the Colorado General Assembly returns for business on Jan. 12, 2022, and NFIB is looking for its members’ opinions on four issues in particular.
Should employers be required to provide work schedules at least two weeks in advance and give “predictability pay” if a work shift is changed or canceled without notice?
Should Colorado impose a sales tax on services?
Should customers and repair shops be able to access the necessary information from manufacturers to repair their products?
Should the legislature revise the laws related to gubernatorial powers in declared emergencies?
The ballot has background information on the four issues, and the main arguments proponents and opponents are making. It was a busy 2021 for NFIB Colorado.
