Press Release

Washington D.C. – Today, the House Committee on Natural Resources Ranking Member, Congressman Bruce Westerman, confirmed that Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) would continue his service on the Committee for the 117th Congress, serving on the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee and the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee. 

"I am pleased to continue working on the House Committee on Natural Resources during the 117th Congress," said Congressman Doug Lamborn. "As a senior member of the House Committee on Natural Resources, I will push to end the Biden Administration's moratorium ban on new oil and gas leases and other anti-energy policies that would put Americans with high-paying jobs out of work. These burdensome policies will hurt American families with higher energy prices during a time when they are recovering from a pandemic. We should promote an all-of-the-above energy policy that ensures affordable, domestically produced energy, and security, for all Americans.

"I will also continue to work to reduce unnecessary regulations that prohibit prosperity and protect recreational access on our public lands, which are essential for our outdoor Colorado lifestyle."

"Rep. Lamborn represents a resources-rich district, and I've had the privilege of collaborating with him on many of these issues in the past," said Ranking Member Bruce Westerman. "I'm so glad to have him on the Committee again this year, and I look forward to learning from his expertise and working with him on policy priorities that affect every American, regardless of where they live. Welcome to the team!"
