The 'Art' Of Retail Location

Choosing the right location for your retail store is com-plex but crucial. It requires a deep understanding of your target market, brand, and business model. Whether you're struggling with foot traffic and conversions, look-ing to add a location, relocate an existing location, or are about to open a store, here are the often missed factors to retail success. Work from home has changed much about predicting shopping behavior because consumers visit local grocery stores and other shops more often during the work week when it may be faster and more convenient.

Colorado To Impose New Emissions Regulations

Colorado will take a major step in the next week toward cutting emissions from the state’s largest manufacturing facilities, but business leaders warn that the current proposal could push production activity out of state without reducing global emissions. A coalition of businesses led by the Colorado Chamber of Commerce is not asking the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission to reject the proposed Greenhouse Gas and Energy Management for Manufacturing Phase 2 (GEMM 2) regulations during a rulemaking hearing scheduled from Wednesday through Friday. However, it is presenting an alternate proposal in which the state would give affected businesses — which range from petroleum refineries to breweries to a mozzarella cheese maker — more ways to comply, including a mitigation fund into which they can pay. On the other side of the coin, climate-advocacy groups like the Environmental Defense Fund argue that the envisioned rules are too lax and that proposed compliance pathways, including a cap-and-trade system, will leave the state far short of reaching its emissions-reduction goals. Also, they argue, provisions in the regulations offered by the Colorado Air Pollution Control Division do not do enough to quickly remove pollutants from disproportionately impacted communities in lower-income areas, which goes against the purpose of the 2021 Environmental Justice Act in which the mandate for GEMM 2 was established.

Emission Regulations

Analysts Parse Colorado Option Numbers

As the Colorado Option insurance program moves into its second year, analysts parse numbers to evaluate its success. No, most plans won’t hit 10% premium-reduction goals outlined in law. But, yes, residents in every county in 2024 will have multiple plans from which they can choose.Moving past this exercise of prioritizing metrics, however, observers of the first-in-the-nation policy more urgently are trying to determine the underlying effects that the man-dated lower-cost insurance option is having on the state’s health-care costs and its care system. And this is where opinions diverge even more sharply. Putting aside the specific numbers, Colorado Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway said the program is hitting its goal by beginning to bend the cost curve of what had been rapidly escalating premiums. While Colorado Option premiums are set to rise by as much as 7.7% in 2024 — a total expected to be lower when Conway approves final rates in October - that is less than the 11.1% average hike in non-option premiums and below the hikes of previous years. “This is a work in progress,” said Sen. Dylan Roberts, the Avon Democrat who co-sponsored the bill launching the program, as well as a measure this year that made some fixes to the law. “I think that people have been too quick to judge the Colorado Option just off of one year of data. We wrote the Colorado Option with the intention of having a three-year rollout, and we’re not even halfway through the rollout at this point.”

Government Shutdown Is Possible

Despite the fact that the Biden Administration and Congressional leaders from both parties in the House and Senate want to avoid a government shutdown, there is a substantial consensus that a shutdown will occur at the beginning of the fiscal year on Oct. 1.  If a government shutdown does occur, it is likely to be significant in duration with no clear path for reopening the government.  The Chamber is providing more detail about the possible length of a shutdown and the implications for the business community and the economy so that our members can prepare accordingly. A government shutdown at the beginning of the fiscal year would mark the fourth shutdown in a decade and the sixth since 1995. In each case, the government was shuttered because a portion of the Congress (always on a partisan basis) refused to support legislation to keep the government open absent some change in spending or policy. In other words, some group of policymakers leverage the “must-pass” legislation to keep the government open to secure their own priorities. While members of both parties have attempted to leverage the necessity of an open and operating government, no one has successfully used a shutdown to change policy in at least the last 25 years.

Not The Time For New Regulation

The Department of Labor has proposed a new overtime regulation to raise the salary threshold. Despite the fact that the Biden Administration and Congressional leaders from both parties in the House and Senate n the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) latest effort to mimic those Servpro ads about making “like it never ever happened,” the agency has now proposed a new overtime regulation to undo the previous regulation issued by the Trump DOL. The new pro-posed regulation, published on Sept. 7, will raise the salary threshold, below which an employee is non-exempt (or eligible to earn overtime) by more than 50% from the current $35,568/year ($684/week) to $55,068/year ($1,059/week). The proposed rule also includes an automatic escalator clause to reset it every three years.
