The Colorado BioScience Association Hosts U.S. Senator Mark Udall and Announces New Legislation at 2014 "BioScience Day at the Capitol"

Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) will host its sixth annual "BioScience Day at the Capitol" on January 23. 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.  

Denver, CO, January 22, 2014 --(PR.com)-- 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 session will bring together industry leaders and legislators to review and discuss key legislative issues, both on the state and federal levels, affecting the growth of the bioscience industry in Colorado.

The announcement is made by April Giles, CBSA President and CEO, who says “2014 is a very important year for the bioscience industry in Colorado. We have several major policy issues to address in additional to the legislation we are supporting. We look forward to a very active session and working to engage our industry and the state legislature.”

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).

CBSA will also be following other possible legislative proposals including:
* Grant Funding for the Advanced Industries Accelerator Program

* Substitution of Biosimilar Products in Colorado
