Issues

Tourism

Kerr co-sponsored the Colorado Regional Tourism Act with Rep. Keith Swerdfeger in 2011.

The bill increases the number of potential regional tourism projects that the Economic Development Commission may approve in the few years following the bill, if it were to pass. The projects would include tourism spots like anything from museums to resort hotels, from amusement parks to a major sports arena.

The initial authorization of regional projects, and corresponding taxing districts, was born out of Senate Bill 09-173, which former Gov. Bill Ritter signed into law.

“State tourism is not only a great way to infuse Colorado’s economy with more revenue, but it also creates more jobs,” said Swerdfeger. “By allowing more regional tourism project applications to be approved, our state creates more ways to bring tourists to Colorado.”

Kerr said looking at ways to expand tourism is particularly wise in its potential for a cross-pollination of revenue sources.

“Regional tourism provides huge potential for economic growth here in Colorado,” said Kerr. “Smart, targeted legislation like this will help bring more visitors to Colorado and expand our tourism sector, and it has the potential to create jobs across the state."[1]

Kerr's sponsored legislation includes:

  • HB 09-1107 - HOA Limits On Energy Efficiency Measures
  • HB 09-1199 - Healthy Forests Vibrant Communities Act
  • HB 09-1299 - National Popular Vote Agreement

For details and a full listing of sponsored bills, see the House site.

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Colorado scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
