County Authority to License and Regulate Business

📋Rural Colorado beware! Senator Kerry Donovan and friends have something up their sleeves. This vague, broadly-written bill allows a county to license and regulate any business or business activity occurring within the county. This could include requiring a farm or ranch to apply for a business license and imposing regulations on agricultural operations, like pesticide use, livestock grazing, and feedlots.
