Colorado Bill SB 190: Boosting Rural Economies with Rail Tax Credits and Incentives Amid Coal Industry Downturn

A Colorado bill legislature wants to help counties hurt by less coal production and to bring more passenger trains to the state’s western areas, according to the published article of THE DAILY SENTINEL. Colorado bill called Senate Bill 190 is supported by Sen. Dylan Roberts from Frisco. It offers tax credits up to $10 million to companies using rail lines for moving things like freight or passengers. These credits are meant to encourage using rail lines that used to carry coal but aren’t used much anymore.

Sen. Roberts says Colorado bill helps the whole state including Delta County. It aims to create jobs and possibly start passenger trains between Craig and Denver. Colorado bill offers tax breaks to new businesses in coal-affected counties starting in 2026. Funding comes from a federal program with bipartisan support to aid areas hit by coal’s decline and prepare for more passenger trains.

Furthermore, Colorado bill also wants to help when coal mines and power plants close. It offers tax breaks to new businesses in these areas but they won’t start until 2026 when the closures are happening. The cash for Colorado bill would come from another bill that gets money from the federal government. With support from both Democrats and Republicans Colorado bill aims to help places affected by coal closing while also getting ready for new things like more trains.
