DENVER, July 13, 2022—The 2021-2022 session of the Colorado General Assembly was a tough one on small business, but today’s release of NFIB’s biennial voting record at least makes it clear which lawmakers stood up for small business and pushed back on many harmful proposals.

Senators and representatives were graded on 12 votes taken during the two-year session. A brief description of them and each lawmaker’s vote on them can be read here. No legislator had a 100% voting record, but 13 senators and 21 representatives managed scores above 90% and another two senators and three representatives were either in the 70% or 80% range. It takes a 70% or better voting record to be eligible for a Guardian of Small Business or earn an endorsement from NFIB Colorado’s political action committee, NFIB CO PAC.

“Governor Polis signed two of our 12 priority bills into law,” said Tony Gagliardi, Colorado state director for NFIB, pointing to the SALT Parity Act and Sales Tax Destination Sourcing Rules Exception bill, “but that good news is outweighed by five other bills he also signed into law that were not helpful for small business.”
