One of my primary focuses as a Representative is building and supporting a healthy economy and job market for all Coloradans. While the economic forecast for the first half of 2013 showed that Colorado’s recovery is continuing, there is still a long way to go. I believe that by supporting workers as well as attracting business opportunities our state will lead the way to economic success. In the 2013 session I worked hard to support initiatives that are aimed at accelerating the states recovery.

I supported bills for protection from employment discrimination, the “Advanced Industries Acceleration Act” to encourage entrepreneurs, small business development, the “Colorado Careers Act of 2013” and many others pieces of legislation aimed at jumpstarting our economy. But there is still a lot of work to do.  Looking towards the 2014 legislative session, I will continue to support any and all measures that will ensure job growth and economic activity, as well as attract new businesses  to our beautiful state.
