Will the Next 120 Days be as Shocking as 120 Volts?!? 

Will the Next 120 Days be as Shocking as 120 Volts?!? 

The 2020 Colorado Legislative session jump-starts this week with Opening Day on January 8th at 9:00 a.m. and Colorado Governor Jared Polis delivering the State of the State Address and the outline of his policy agenda on January 9th at 11:00 a.m. 

There are a number of critical business, industry, education, and labor & employment topics that the IECRM Government Relations Committee will be following this session including legislation to be introduced regarding the Labor Peace Act, Paid Family Leave, Healthcare solutions, Transportation and Education funding. And it is an election year, which makes the potential energy around policy debates and decisions even more important to business owners and the electrical industry. 

The Government Relations Committee invites you to be part of the experience and solution surrounding these issues. Please participate as a member and contributor on the committee this session; our first meeting of 2020 is scheduled for January 15th at 7:30 a.m. at IECRM. Email to be added to the distribution list for these meetings. We often call upon our members for specific “real life” examples to use in testimony or to meet individually with local legislators for coffee or a jobsite tour. 

We especially invite you to represent the industry and attend the Building Jobs for Colorado (BJ4C) Annual Legislative Reception on Tuesday, January 28th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at The University Club in Denver. RSVP to
