Washington D.C. - On Tuesday, May 14, the Air Force officially released its six candidates for the newly-reconstituted U.S. Space Command as a functional Unified Combatant Command. The six official bases, selected through the Air Force strategic basi... [...]
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.

Adding 65k of debt to Colorado families is not a responsible way to deal with environmental issues. Without being in the Paris Climate Accord, the U.S. lowered emissions by 18% over the last 10 years, which leads to me believe these problems can be solved in the free market, and without obligations that would burden seniors and the middle-class. https://pagetwo.completecolorado.com/2019/05/22/colorado-congressman-rep-doug-lamborn-lambastes-the-green-new-deal/
Here's my Op-Ed in today's The Gazette. From our current space programs and assets -to a unified space command structure, Colorado Springs offers the most seamless and most cost-effective transition. I am continuing to work hard to bring Space Command home to Colorado Springs. https://gazette.com/opinion/columnists/guest-column-colorado-springs-is-the-place-for-space-command/article_27242c66-7b48-11e9-b497-cfbcf24973a2.html
Today, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the House passage of an amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing women the right to vote. The Senate followed two weeks later with the passage on June 4, 1919, and the 19th Amendment went to the states where it was ratified on August 26, 1920. I join my colleagues in wearing a yellow rose on my lapel in recognition of the supporters of the 19th Amendment. I am proud to honor the many outstanding woman leaders and the suffragists who fought to give all women a voice. This historic centennial offers an unparalleled opportunity to commemorate this victorious milestone of the women's suffrage movement. On this historic day, I am pleased to announce that I am a cosponsor of H.R. 473, which authorizes the establishment in Washington D.C. of the "Every Word We Utter Monument" in commemoration of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. For more information on the impact, Colorado had on the suffragist movement. Visit here: https://www.nps.gov/articles/colorado-and-the-19th-amendment.htm

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. He is the current Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee’s Subcommittee on Water, Power, and Oceans and a member of the Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources. He also serves on the House Armed Services Committee as a member of the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces and the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities. He has a strong record of advocating for our military and our veterans, defending the Second Amendment, and calling for immigration reform and tax reform. During his tenure in Congress, he has been a strong voice on behalf of small businesses and a consistent leader on pro-family issues.

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.
