Business groups ask Congress to pass reform bill

Business leaders representing such organizations as Colorado Concern, the Colorado Competitive Council, Colorado Forum and the Colorado Bioscience Association convened on Sept. 23 at Metro State University in Denver to release a letter that calls on U.S. Reps.

The missive signed by leaders in the technology, agriculture, tourism and other industry sectors said the reform bill should include an improved visa system.
