BioScience Day at the Colorado Capitol: CBSA Hosts U.S. Senator Mark Udall and Announces New Legislation

Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) will host the sixth annual “BioScience Day at the Capitol” on Thursday, January 23rd, 7:30-11:00 a.m. at the Capitol Building in the Old Supreme Court Chambers (200 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, 80203). The event will feature U.S. Senator Mark Udall providing a federal policy update; a Women in BioScience Executive Panel discussion; and Patient Impact Testimonials.

This session, CBSA and Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) are initiating the 2014 Colorado Advanced Industry Investment Income Tax Credit legislation to encourage private sector investment and create jobs for Colorado’s Advanced Industry Sectors. The legislation will provide a 25% (30% in rural or economically distressed areas of the state) income tax credit to qualified investors who invest more than $25,000 in a qualified advanced industry company beginning July, 2014-2018. The proposal expands and redefines HB 09-1105 and HB 11-1045, which established the Colorado Innovation Investment Tax Credit (2010 pilot program).

Agenda for BioScience Day at the Capitol: 

* CBSA Policy Update
* Patient Impact Testimonials
