Secretary of the Air Force
I met with Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson to discuss the Administration’s ongoing reforms to the national security space enterprise. The 5th Congressional District of Colorado is the epicenter of national defense space, and I had a productive conversation on everything Colorado Springs has to offer, including coming decisions on topics such as where U.S. Space Command will be located.
I was honored to have met the brave Navy Seal who killed Osama Bin Laden. I’m thankful for his service and sacrifice to our country.
Award For Conservative Excellence
It was an honor to accept the Award for Conservative Excellence from the American Conservative Union. They rated my voting at 96%, the highest in the Colorado delegation, for my work to protect the unborn, end Obamacare and sanctuary cities, and pass historic tax reform. It is a privilege to be recognized in this way because my vote is a vote in Congress on behalf of the people in Colorado's Fifth Congressional District
Recognition of the National Museum of World War II Aviation
It was my privilege to meet the last living American World War II triple-ace fighter pilot Col. Clarence “Bud” Anderson at the ceremony where he accepted an official recognition from Congress on behalf of the National Museum of World War II Aviation in Colorado Springs. I was proud to sponsor the resolution in the House of Representatives to make it one of only 12 museums in America to receive national recognition. (Photo from Colorado Springs Gazette)
Congressional Art Competition 2018
On March 23rd I had the privilege of presenting awards to the winners of the Congressional Art Competition here in the Fifth District. I've been amazed at the great artistic talents of the young people in the Colorado Fifth Congressional District over the years of judging the competition. This gives me the chance to meet the best and brightest young men and women of the District. This year we recognized the teachers of the students, as they're the primary shapers of our young people's artistic talent. The art competition provides us with a wonderful opportunity to showcase the abilities of our District's brilliant young artists to the rest of the nation. Once the winners have been selected by a local panel of professional artists, the Grand Prize winner's art displayed in the United States Capitol Building for one year. It's always a joy to walk by the artwork of our young students and admire their hard work and artistic ability I look forward to seeing the work of this year's winner displayed alongside that of other brilliant young artists from across America.
Receiving True Blue Award From Tony Perkins
I was honored to receive the True Blue Award from the Family Research Council. Consistently voting pro-life and pro-family is important to me.
Rally for Jack Phillips with Alliance Defending Freedom
Rep. Lamborn rallied for Jack Phillips today while the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case. Jack doesn’t violate any proper understanding of nondiscrimination laws. He serves all people, but declines some requests for custom cakes that conflict with his faith. That is not a form of unlawful discrimination, but a legitimate exercise of his artistic and religious freedom.
Taylor Force Act Passes House Vote
Rep. Lamborn and Rep. Lee Zeldin (NY-01) join Stuart and Robbi Force, the parents of Taylor Force, whom H.R. 1165 was named for after his murder by Palestinian Authority funded terrorism. The Palestinian Authority allocates hundreds of millions of dollars annually to pay terrorists to murder innocent Israelis and Americans. The bill is an important first step in ending U.S. tax dollars from supporting terrorists who kill innocents like Taylor.

I applaud President Trump and Secretary Azar for their tireless efforts to revise the outdated Title X regulations to ensure tax dollars are used for family planning. This new rule will restore the program’s efficiency and integrity and provide protection for victims of sexual assault. It provides a bright line of separation between abortion services and family planning by directing tax dollars to entities that provide healthcare to women but do not perform abortions, ending the illegitimate use of Title X grant money as a slush fund for abortion providers. Last year, many of my colleagues in the House and I requested a revision of these regulations. I’m very pleased with the new rule that will protect the program, protect the recipients, and protect the consciences of the taxpayers who fund it.
I have the immense honor of nominating young men and women from Colorado's Fifth Congressional District to our nation's great service academies. To those students nominated this year: Congratulations, and thank you for answering the call to serve your country. The unparalleled freedoms and liberties that we enjoy as Americans - freedoms and liberties that have propelled our nation to prosperity and contributed to the values that make America great - would not exist were it not for the men and women like these. It has been a joy to learn a bit about each of you and to provide you with a well-earned nomination. I wish you all the best as you pursue your dreams.
I'm disappointed in this deal. Border Patrol Agents have made their needs clear, and this legislation fails to provide for those needs. This isn't a serious attempt to stop illegal immigration and secure our border. A lot of Democrats want open borders and they will play politics to get that. They oppose policy simply because it’s supported by President Trump. The president asked Congress to provide $5.7 billion to strengthen the southern border wall. This legislation falls short in appropriating only a quarter of that money. It's unacceptable. Congress can and should do better. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mcconnell-says-trump-prepared-to-sign-border-security-bill-and-will-declare-national-emergency
I'm so pleased to serve on the Readiness Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee. Congressional Republicans and President Trump have been fighting to rebuild our hollowed-out military for the past two years. While progress has been made we still have a ways to go to ensure that our men and women in uniform have the best training and equipment possible to succeed in the current threat environment. https://gazette.com/premium/lamborn-ascends-to-ranking-republican-on-key-military-readiness-panel/article_3d276ac4-2a66-11e9-9d96-1b819ae8b931.html

I hope to see Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed quickly - particularly in time for the U.S. Supreme Court's next term which will begin in October. Congressman Doug Lamborn is honored to have served Colorado's Fifth Congressional District since 2006.

Congressman Lamborn Offered up a bill that would prohibit the use of funds to implement or enforce the threatened species or endangered species listing of any plant or wildlife that has not undergone a five year review as required by the Endangered Species Act of 1973. This would ensure that listed species are properly managed and not enforce protections that do not comply with the law.
