      New car-sharing regulations OK'd by Colorado legislators

      A bill to regulate the budding car-sharing sector in Colorado will soon be on its way to Gov. Jared Polis with a number of provisions requiring participating auto owners to meet safety and insurance standards — but not with the fee-equity requirements that rental-car companies sought over two months of debate on the legislation.

      Polis signs law to create program simplifying Colorado's sales-tax system

      SB 6, sponsored by Sen. Angela Williams, D-Denver, requires the state to put in place a system with which business owners can easily determine the level of taxes owed based upon the address to where they ship, as well as the particular taxing districts to who they owe the money, and to which they can submit taxes for all local governments and have the state parse out those various revenues. Authors of the bill — including co-sponsoring Reps. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, D-Arvada, and Kevin Van Winkle, R-Highlands Ranch — believe it will be 18 to 24 months before the system is up and ...

      Colorado's role in 'asset-sharing' economy argued in bill to regulate car-sharing services

      Crafting first-of-their-kind regulations for a disruptive industry sector is neither a simple process nor one that tends to create consensus between the newcomers and the older, heavily regulated competition — a fact that a Colorado legislative committee discovered Wednesday during a two-hour hearing on rules for the ride-sharing sector.

      Capitol Business Preview: Battle brews in Colorado over regulating car-sharing services

      One of the many machinations of the sharing economy in Colorado involves car-sharing services like Turo, through which automobile owners can list their vehicles for others to use for a price at specific times. As these services have grown over the past few years, however, the state has allowed them to operate largely without regulation — a situation that is about to change and is stirring controversy, particularly for rental-car companies.

      Colorado launching program to help companies convert to employee ownership

      Two years ago, then-Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a law pushing Colorado into the business of helping people convert their companies into employee-owned businesses. It set aside money for the state to offer advice on the practice, allowed for the creation of a commission to oversee the task ... and then basically was forgotten.

      AG Weiser seeks to be top 'cop' against irresponsible companies

      Weiser, in a recent interview, explained that he plans to be more active in filing legal actions against businesses that, say, recklessly expose their customers to data breaches or endanger public safety or lie to the public about the risks of their products — particularly as he looks at expanding the already filed lawsuit against Purdue Pharma to other opioid manufacturers who may have helped to grow the current addiction crisis. And the reason he is taking that tact, he explained, is so that entrepreneurs and innovators have room to plant their seeds and grow in Colorado without fear of competing ...

      Colorado needs more economic incentives for companies to create apprenticeships, report states

      Though Colorado is making progress in terms of the number of its residents who are obtaining advanced degrees, the gap between current figures and where the state needs to be remains a “big deal,” and the state may need to look at providing economic incentives to companies to further expand the infrastructure needed to develop successful career pathways, a new Colorado Department of Labor and Employment report says.

      New Colorado business committee chairwoman vows to bring business, labor together

      Six years ago, when she was named chairwoman of the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee, then-Rep. Angela Williams called representatives from business, labor and other organizations together and informed them things would be different under her oversight. Before controversial measures came before the committee, she would sit down with both sides — either together or separately — understand their issues and try to find common ground.

      Incentives garner Colorado more than 6,800 new jobs in 2018

      State officials garnered a lot of attention in 2018 for their successful recruiting of VF Corporation’s headquarters, which will relocate from Greensboro, North Carolina, to Denver’s Union Station neighborhood in mid-2019. But that company was just one of 20 that accepted job-growth incentive tax credits from the Colorado Economic Development Commission this year to create as many as 6,821 new jobs in the state over the next eight years.

      Colorado's eco-devo director: Why I'm leaving for a new opportunity

      After nearly 30 years as a leader in the telecommunications industry, Stephanie Copeland never expected to transition into the public sector — a change that was “unexpected and unbelievably fulfilling.” Copeland and Gov. John Hickenlooper announced Monday that she would be stepping down as the leader of OEDIT on Dec. 31 to become the first CEO of The Governance Project, a nonprofit effort that will work with local governments to give them the tools they need to take advantage of government programs to spur their economies.

      Colorado gives online retailers a temporary reprieve from new sales-tax rules

      Online retailers who are worried about how to comply with Colorado’s new sales-tax rules got a couple of months more to figure things out Thursday from the Colorado Department of Revenue. State officials extended by two months — from March 31 to May 31 — the deadline for retailers to comply with rules announced in September that require sellers of online goods to remit taxes to the state and to the local jurisdictions in which the purchasers reside. Revenue department leaders have exempted from the rules out-of-state businesses that make less than $100,000 in revenues or do less than 200 ...
