DURANGO — Chinook Medical Gear was scheduled to host Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 23.

The governor was expected to sign House Bill 1193, the Advanced Industries Export Accelerator Act. The bill would provide further funding for export promotion, including reimbursement up to $15,000 for half of a businesses' expenses for export promotion activities.

As a leading supplier of emergency medical supplies, Chinook was selected for the bill signing because of the company's previous use of the AI grant and experience exporting its products overseas.

"It's an honor to host Governor Hickenlooper," said Jessica Denison, chief operations officer with Chinook Medical Gear. "This bill will help independent businesses like Chinook compete on a global scale by selling more products overseas and creating jobs at the local level."
