On Monday evening, the Colorado legislature officially adjourned nearly a month after it was originally scheduled to adjourn, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.  The last week of the session was marked by the introduction of several controversial bills, all of which would have server implications for the business community. One of the most worrisome bills, HB2-1420 was significantly pared down thanks to efforts from business lobbyists, and Governor Polis sending a clear message that he would not support the bill as it was. The bill, which would have originally eliminated nine different tax exemptions for businesses, is expected to raise $113 million for education throughout the next fiscal year.
