Colorado Governor Polis visits Docupots while in Sterling to sign SB21-229

Gov. Polis gives speech in Docupots’s manufacturing area.
I’m in Sterling this afternoon to sign SB21-229 which puts more funds into the Rural Jump-Start Zone Grant Program that will offer state tax relief to new businesses and their employees that locate in rural areas of Colorado that are facing economic challenges. These measures are on top of statewide sales tax relief for all restaurants and tax relief for everyone including reducing the assessment rate for the property taxes on your home, an even greater reduction in property taxes for land used for agricultural and renewable energy, reducing vehicle registration fees by $11 per vehicle, ensuring seniors don’t have to pay state tax on social security income, and eliminating the need for tens of thousands of small businesses to have to even file no less pay the business personal property tax.

Roger Hosea thinks he has the answer. View article on the Journal-Advocate….
