Washington, DC – Today, the House passed the National Defense Authorization Act Conference Report for Fiscal Year 2019. As a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee and a conferee for this year’s bill, Congressman Lamborn has played a sig... [...]
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.
Signing NDAA FY18 with Speaker Paul Ryan
Speaker Ryan signed the National Defense Authorization Act for 2018. This bill funds our military, gives our troops a pay raise, and reforms our approach to space defense. I was honored to attend and see this bill move further along. Now it's on to the White House.
Pikes Peak National Cemetery
I am pleased to announce that construction on Phase 1 of the construction of the Pikes Peak National Cemetery is underway. Phase 1 will be completed in Fall of 2019 and cover 65 acres with 13,000 burial sites. Over the coming decades the cemetery will expand until it can hold up to 200,000 burial sites. This cemetery will be a memorial to our veterans and their service. I'll continue to work with the VA to ensure the Pikes Peak National Cemetery is completed on time for veterans in our community. Our region is home to 80% of the state's veterans and Colorado has the highest percentage of veterans in the nation. We're long overdue for a local cemetery to honor our veterans and provide a final resting place to America's heroes.

What's next for the VA and healthcare for our nation's many veterans? I want to build on the best legacy of the VA, but also improve the care our veterans receive. Ultimately, they deserve the very best we can give them as a nation. http://worldandeverything.org/2018/08/washington-wednesday-va-reform/
In the Masterpiece Cakeshop ruling just two months ago, the Supreme Court soundly rebuked the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for its hostility against Jack Phillips. Justice Kennedy reminded America that religion is welcome in the public square, and may not be discriminated against by the government. And yet, the Commission is at it again, targeting Jack once more, ignoring both the ruling and Jack’s freedom of religion. This is outrageous! http://www.adfmedia.org/News/PRDetail/10601
The FDA is using federal money to create a demand for human body parts taken from babies who are aborted. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund this grotesque practice. I have voted to end taxpayer funding of this grotesque practice, and will continue fighting for the dignity of the unborn. Unborn children are worth more than the sum of their parts. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/food-and-drug-administration-signs-controversial-contract-with-fetal-tissue-provider-25040

RT @realDonaldTrump: Space Force all the way!
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.
