Rivera Praises Passage of Bill to Create a “By Colorado” App

Senator George Rivera (R-Pueblo) issued the following statement today after a bill he co-sponsored with Senate President Morgan Carroll (D-Aurora) to create a “By Colorado” App passed the Senate Business, Labor & Technology Committee unanimously: 

“The more we can encourage Coloradans to buy products from Pueblo and all across Colorado, the better off we are as a state and a community. Mobile apps are becoming such an integral part of our lives these days that putting this information at the fingertips of out-of-state visitors and Coloradans alike only makes sense. It’s been a pleasure working on this measure with my fellow co-sponsors and I’m hopeful it will pass the Senate and be signed by Governor Hickenlooper.” 

SB-166 directs the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade to contract for the creation of a “By Colorado” App. The App will direct users to businesses that are either owned, located, or headquartered out of Colorado.
