Swerdfeger is the cofounder/owner of K.R. Swerdfeger Construction.
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Swerdfeger has been appointed to these committees:
- Economic and Business Development Committee, Colorado House of Representatives
- Finance Committee, Colorado House of Representatives, Vice Chair
- Local Government Committee, Colorado House of Representatives
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."
Swerdfeger was uncontested in the August 10 primary. He defeated Democrat Carole L. Partin in the November 2 general election.
