What is the Jefferson County Business Lobby (JCBL)?
Jefferson County Business Lobby (JCBL) represents over 21,000 businesses and 305,000 jobs through four business organizations: Arvada Chamber of Commerce, Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce, Evergreen Chamber of Commerce, Jefferson County Economic Development Corporation and the West Chamber of Commerce.
For 2016, the JCBL is focused on state policies and legislation in the following areas:
- Economic development
- Infrastructure investments
- Regulatory reform
- Colorado budget
- Workforce development
JCBL members are companies that range from very small to large corporations. Business is the backbone of Colorado’s economy and its ability to sustain the state’s transportation system, education both higher education and K-12 and provide necessary revenues for state, county and local governments. JCBL urges members of the 2016 General Assembly to keep in mind that these businesses need their support and consideration to keep jobs they have and the ability to grow as the recession wanes. Our communities are made up of small employers who feel the impacts of regulations and governmental fees and mandates very quickly and these actions translate in job losses in this day’s economy.
