Vectra Bank provided us with the following
Small Business Guide from the U.S Chamber
Additionally, I was on a call with Michael Conway, Commissioner of Insurance for the State of Colorado. Attached below are a couple of resource pages he asked that I forward. He also requested from a data perspective he needed actual numbers of businesses who have been denied their claim for Business Interruption Insurance. Anecdotally, businesses are not filing because they are hearing they will be turned down. Commissioner Conway said he needs the actual data of rejection to lobby further on behalf of the business community. If you were considering filing for Business Interruption on your policy and the "rumor" of rejection kept you from filing, please follow the Commissioners advice and file.
