Congressman Lamborn has issued the following statement regarding H.R. 23, the Gaining Responsibility on Water (GROW) Act:

"As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Water, Power & Oceans, I am pleased to see that this important drought legislation has passed the House. Many in the West have seen first-hand how mismanagement of water infrastructure can devastate communities. This legislation will expand storage options and improve the permitting process to ensure that water is reliable, protected, and safe for wildlife. I applaud the passage of this important bill, and I look forward to more hard work in committee to safeguard our natural resources."
