Statement on Antiquities Act Executive Order

April 26, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn has released the following statement in response to the President's review of monument designations in the West:

"The review of the monuments designated under the Antiquities Act is both warranted and necessary. Today's executive order signifies a shift in power from the federal government to the local communities who support these monuments and deserve to have a voice in the process. As the President and Secretary Zinke review the monuments in Colorado, I urge them to consider multi-user groups and recreation, community outreach, and the ability to fund and manage these important lands."

- Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
