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 would say to furloughed government employees – to the hard working, patriotic Americans who want to be doing their job, who want to be working for the good of the country: we will get paid back to the first day paychecks were held back." I talked to Richard Randall last week about the government shutdown, border security, and what to expect moving forward. Listen to the full interview here: https://koanewsradio.iheart.com/content/2019-01-14-doug-lamborn-on-government-shutdown/
Walls actually work. DHS reports that illegal traffic has dropped: -- over 95% in Yuma since 2005 -- over 90% in Tucson since 2004 -- over 92% in the San Diego area since 1996 All because sections of the border were secured with fencing and walls.
In recent months, nearly 2,000 people each day have attempted to cross the border illegally. Effective border security means reeling back this number by providing an efficient and legal immigration policy -- not only protecting those seeking to enter but our own citizens as well.
I voted against H.R. 21 last week for several reasons. It not only insufficiently funds the southern border wall, it repeals a common sense policy that simply guarantees US taxpayer dollars are not being used to promote or perform abortion overseas through federal aid. Taxpayer dollars are better spent on the health of children and mothers, on malaria and HIV prevention and treatment, rather than on snuffing out the lives of unborn children. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKE_Sq9l_LM&feature=youtu.be

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.

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.
