Is Right to Rest a Right to Harass Business Owners?

The controversial Right to Rest bill (HB19-1096) seeks to give the homeless rights which will directly impact the livelihoods of small business owners. What about their rights?

The challenges of being a small business owner

Susan Kochevar of the historic 88 Drive-in Theatre joins Kim on the show today. Kochevar is in the studio wearing her small business owner hat and today’s segments reflect that.

Kochevar and Kim discuss the recent success of February’s Vino & Veritas at Water’s Edge Winery, Kochevar’s work and experience with the Job Creator’s Network, and the benefits of President Trump’s tax policies for small business owners.

Right to Rest and its potential to impact business owners?

Jovan Melton, a Democrat representing Aurora, is the sponsor of HB19-1096. The bill allows the homeless to camp out in public spaces, to sleep in cars, and to eat in public spaces where food is allowed. The bill seems reasonable on its face until you consider the points Kochevar raises about the relentless campaign Occupy Denver has waged against the Corner Bakery. Or the way the homeless seem to have taken over the 16th Street Mall and other parts of downtown.

Why should the homeless be given a set of rights apart from the rest of the citizenry? Aren’t we all equal? And with the actions some homeless are exhibiting, what is the potential for abuse and harm to small business owners? Would you be willing to buy food from a pizza stand surrounded by trash and homeless people in sleeping bags? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
