Washington, D.C. - Representative Doug Lamborn (CO-05) issued the following statement: “I am deeply saddened to hear of Louise Slaughter's death. My thoughts and prayers go to her family, friends, and Congressional staff. As the first woman to chair ... [...]
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)
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.
Honoring Pearl Harbor Survivor and Navigator Jim Downing's Legacy
On February 13th, 2018, a true American hero and a valued asset to our community, Jim Downing was promoted to glory. Jim fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. I thank God for the life and legacy of Jim Downing.
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.
National World War I Groundbreaking in Washington
The World War I Centennial Silver Dollar will be issued next year and it will assist the World War One Centennial Commission with paying this special memorial. Rep. Lamborn introduced the bill for the coin along with Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II, Senator Roy Blunt, and Senator Claire McCaskill.

U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke proposed a $3 million budget for the Bureau of Reclamation to move much of its federal leadership out west to Colorado, closer to the natural resources it manages. I asked Sec. Zinke at the Natural Resources Committee hearing more about his plans and was happy to find he recognizes the importance of our headwater state. The Bureau and Colorado go together hand in glove in their mission to effectively manage water infrastructure. That's why I'm excited to hear of the proposed move and I think it would bring great things to our region.
President Trump committed to improving our space defense capabilities last night in California. He said, "My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain just like the land, air, and sea." I couldn't agree more, Mr. President. Both China and Russia have admitted to developing counter-space technology. It's time to get serious about space threats.Congress must work to ensure America is the leader in space. I look forward to protecting and enhancing our ventures there.
The first sounds of a heartbeat immediately bring to mind one thing: life. For a baby in the womb, the beat of a heart is proof of human life and thus worthy of dignity. I spoke of my support on the House Floor for the Heartbeat Protection Act because it prohibits abortion after a heartbeat is detected. Instead of turning to abortion, let's address the practical needs of a woman facing pregnancy decisions.
March 8 marks a heartbreaking anniversary. Taylor Force, a young American veteran, was tragically murdered two years ago while visiting Israel at the hands of a Palestinian terrorist. Yesterday, his father Stuart bravely shared their family's story on Capitol Hill. We stand with the Force family in their sorrow, especially today. That's why I authored the Taylor Force Act, which would halt U.S. taxpayer funding to the Palestinian Authority until they stop rewarding terrorists for terrible crimes like this. We cannot let more innocent people like Taylor die.
