Getting Colorado back to work has been a top priority for Andy. He has brought employers and workers together through multiple job fairs. He has helped constituents get past the busy signals at State offices to get the employment services they need. He even helped one local business keep it's doors open by stepping in when the bank was about write them off. He got all sides talking until they found a payment plan that worked for everyone. The business is thriving now, and the bank turned a loss into a profit.

Andy knows that not every problem needs a law, some just require communication and bit of hard work, but when legislation is appropriate, nobody works harder than Andy at building consensus to get things done.

His focus is on jobs that will be here today and stay here tomorrow. His bills lay the groundwork for the New Energy Economy, the Knowledge Economy, and jobs in Colorado based industries like tourism.
