Business perspective needed at the capitol

Ray Scott has it right. Faced with declining revenues and budget shortfalls in the aftermath of a recession, business owners have had to scale back their operations, establish priorities and make the painful decisions to reduce staffing. Stuck in the same circumstances, Scott believes state government must take a similar approach.

As the owner of three Grand Junction companies, Scott brings a needed entrepreneurial perspective to the State Legislature as the newly elected Republican representative in House District 54.
He adds to the similar perspectives offered by State Rep. Laura Bradford, the Collbran Republican in District 55, and State Sen. Steve King, the Grand Junction Republican in District 7.

What makes the situation different — and perhaps more encouraging — this legislative session is that John Hickenlooper also will draw on a business background as the new governor of Colorado. Hickenlooper brings to his duties a very different outlook from that of his predecessor, a former district attorney.

While running a government isn’t exactly the same as running a business, there can be some important similarities: providing those services customers deem most important, reducing inefficiencies and redundancies wherever possible and, most basic of all, keeping expenditures below revenues.

Business owners offer another important perspective in that they know full well the importance of businesses to the Colorado economy, the jobs they create and the tax revenues they generate that fund government. Business owners know from personal experience that government policies can hinder and even hurt business. And when that happens, the economy and government usually suffers.

Here’s hoping business minds prevail during the legislative session under way in Denver in dealing with the budget shortfall by reducing spending rather than raising taxes. Here’s hoping state lawmakers enact measures that make Colorado a more friendly place in which to do business. At the very least, the Legislature should strive to do no harm.
