Boulder Together Transportation Update: Day at the Capitol

On March 20, along with our regional partners in the Northwest Chamber Alliance (NWCA), the Boulder Chamber met with government leaders and legislators that included Governor Jared Polis, Speaker of the House KC Becker, Representative Jonathan Singer, Representative Edie Hooton, CDOT Director Shoshana Lew and others to discuss solutions to key regional business issues.

Discussions focused on the need for improved mobility for our workforce and residents to sustain a thriving economy and address quality of life concerns. Our coalition of chamber representatives emphasized the need for additional annual funding in the state budget for transportation investments. They also advocated for increased transportation funding for multi-modal projects that will expand the range of transportation solutions, specifically for improvements on key regional corridors such as State Highway 119 (The Diagonal) and State Highway 7 (East Arapahoe). The NWCA also advocated for workforce housing solutions and supported legislation to fund an electronic system that will help our small businesses comply with new online sales tax reporting requirements.

The Boulder Chamber will continue to work with Boulder’s state legislative delegation and the Polis administration to secure our requested policy outcomes. The partnership with our NWCA colleagues – along with the 2,800 businesses and estimated 280,000 employees we collectively represent – will be a strong voice in that effort.
