Special Session To Be Held

Gov. Jared Polis announced the Colorado Legislature will go into special session next week to try to craft an alternative property-tax-break plan in the wake of Prop HH’s failure Tuesday, but it’s unclear whether com-mercial properties will get any help.The Democratic governor issued an executive order for the session to begin 9 a.m. on Fri., Nov. 17, lasting through the weekend before Thanksgiving and calling for legislators to produce a package “to reduce Coloradans’ property tax burden in 2023.” Residential property values have risen between 40% and 50% in many counties, and while commercial property valuations have gone up less than that in some urban areas, they largely are on the rise too at a time when vacancy rates in office buildings have spiked.Polis and legislative Democrats hoped to address this problem through Prop HH, a ballot measure that would have reduced property values, lowered assessment rates and set soft caps on future valuation hikes in exchange for lifting the state’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights revenue cap. A full 59% of voters rejected the proposal during Tuesday’s election, however, leaving ruling Democrats with the choice of allowing the spike in property-tax bills or of going back into session to come up with a new solution, as Republicans have asked to do since May.

Special Session

482 Toxic Air Contaminants

Some 2,000 facilities across Colorado soon must report the amount of 482 different toxic air contaminants that they emitted in 2023 — an arduous process that is likely to lead to ramped- up regulations on five of what the state considers to be the most dangerous compounds. This requirement stems from House Bill 22-1244, which was pushed by a coalition of neighborhood and environmental groups wanting the state to take a more active role in protecting residents from pollutants that could cause everything from cancer to birth defects. Unlike Colorado’s efforts to monitor and reduce ozone pollution, which focus on regional calculations, the monitoring of toxic air contaminants has an intensely local focus that is likely to lead to restrictions on specific compounds coming from an oil refinery or manufacturing facility, said Rep. Chris deGruy Kennedy, the Lakewood Democrat who co-sponsored the bill.But to know if there is too much benzene coming from the Suncor Energy facility in Commerce City or too much ethylene oxide coming from the Terumo Corp. plant in Lakewood, the state must have data showing what is being emitted where and at what levels. And to do that, it will rely on a combination of existing data, newly self-reported data and figures from seven monitoring stations that are in the process of going up.

How To Survive A Government Shutdown

If lawmakers cannot reach an agreement on government funding by Nov. 17, a shutdown will occur. We narrowly avoided a shutdown on Oct. 1 after Congress passed a short-term stopgap spending measure on Sept. 30. The last government shutdown, from December 2018 to January 2019, was a partial government shutdown that lasted for 35 days, and analysts estimate the shutdown reduced economic output by $11 billion in the following two quarters, including $3 billion the U.S. economy never regained. During the 2018-2019 partial government shutdown, some federal agencies remained open because their funding was approved prior to the shutdown, like the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This allowed HHS to move forward with clinical trials even though many other parts of the government were closed. This year, Congress has not approved any of the 12 appropriations measures that fund government operations, so the impending shutdown would impact all federal departments and agencies. 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. This is the time to prepare for a potential shutdown, and the information in this piece may be helpful to small businesses. 

Surviving A Shutdown

Promote Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is an annual event that takes place on the Saturday following Thanksgiving (this year, November 25, 2023). First observed in 2010, Small Business Saturday has become an important day to show appreciation for the small businesses that are the backbone of our nation’s economy. Small Business Saturday encourages Americans across the country to support local small businesses. The day infuses money back into our local economies, promotes vibrant and diverse communities, and celebrates the important role of small businesses in the national economy. In 2010, in an effort to support local small businesses – many of whom were hurting during the economic recession – American Express launched Small Business Saturday to help drive more holiday shopping to small businesses. One year after the launch, local officials across the nation began to notice and promote the day. In 2011, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution in support of Small Business Saturday and by 2012 officials in all 50 states began to participate – and they have every year since.

Community Engagement Makes A Difference

Retailers play an essential role in community engagement by supporting local causes, participating in local events, and partnering with other businesses. Retailers are the glue that brings the community together and betters it through cause-related marketing and collaborations that build strong connections within their local communities. Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week to celebrate small businesses' contributions to our country.
