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.

As part of its modernization efforts, the Army announced today that it is converting it's Infantry Brigade Combat Team to a Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Carson. This upgrade is a testament to the quality of our community as the Colorado Springs area continues to be the Army's number one most-requested duty station and is consistently ranked as one of the best cities in the nation to live. Colorado Springs and the entire Pikes Peak region benefit greatly from the economic growth that accompanies decisions such as this. In return, we are proud to provide the support and assistance to our soldiers and their families as they sacrifice so much to serve our country. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH5rhEnd7I4

To be considered, please send a one-page resume to CO05internship@mail.house.gov by November 1. Our intern coordinator will then contact you to set up an interview.
I join Israelis and Americans in mourning the brutal murder of Ari Fuld, an American-Israeli husband and father of four. Ari was murdered by a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist. What teenager wakes up and instead of going to school, decides to stab a man to death in cold blood? A teenager who has been taught to respect and honor terrorists, who has attended summer camps named after them, and who is told he and his family will be paid for doing so. This is why we needed the Taylor Force Act. American tax dollars must not support an entity that financially rewards the murder of innocent Israelis and Americans like Ari Fuld. May Ari’s memory be a blessing and comfort to those who loved him.

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.
