JCBL 2017 Legislative Priorities

Attracting and Retaining Talented Employees

The JCBL will advocate for:

  1. Bipartisan compromise to reform Colorado’s construction litigation laws that have lead to abusive lawsuits against developers and contractors and, therefore, the near elimination of condo construction and an attainable housing shortage for new and existing employees.
  2. Addressing the skilled labor shortage in Jefferson County through more – and more effective – training and retraining programs through K-12 schools and institutions of higher education.
  3. Increasing and enhancing incentives for talent retention and experiential training in key areas, including IT, STEM and the skilled trades.
  4. Strong state funding for public education and higher education necessary to attract and retain top talent.
