Lamborn statement on Omnibus Lands Bill – H.R. 146
Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) voted "No" on the Omnibus Land Bill (H.R. 146) today.
"While this bill contains some good provisions for our state, on the whole it remains a bad deal for Colorado and the United States.
"It’s a job-killer for energy because it prohibits American-made energy production and new jobs on more than 3 million acres of federal lands.
"It fails to restore second amendment rights in federal parks that a federal judge struck down last week.
"While I am pleased the Senate modified the bill so that it no longer criminalizes the ‘casual collection’ of rocks in parks, it unfortunately still criminalizes commercial fossil collecting." – Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
