Welcome to the May edition of ‘On the Fly’ – a short month news update for CRA members that will give you the lowdown on what you need to know. One of the stories we mention in the video is regarding ADA Lawsuits. We are trying to arm ourselves with compelling stories to share with lawmakers as we try to initiate a Right to Cure. If you have been served with one of these lawsuits, please provide a brief description of your story with us. We will be in touch upon receipt to get more details!
The 2017 legislative session was a good year for the Colorado Restaurant Association. With both chambers of the legislature controlled by different parties, Democrats and Republicans needed to compromise in order to get anything accomplished. This helped the CRA protect the restaurant industry from some potentially harmful legislation, while at the same time allowing us to get smart legislation through the process. Take a look at our latest legislative update for highlights from this year’s session. If you would like to know more about what the CRA does at the Colorado legislature or if you would like to participate on the CRA’s legislative committee, please contact Nick Hoover at 303-830-2972.
