Congressman Salazar Statement On Piñon Canyon
Congressman John Salazar released the following statement today with regards to Piñon Canyon:
"Despite the misleading story in today's Denver Post, I will never call a "truce" in the battle over protecting my constituents' private property rights. No authorization exists to expand Piñon Canyon - period. Congress has not authorized any expansion and, for the 3rd year in a row at my request, has banned funds for expansion. You cannot have expansion without authorization and funding - and I will oppose any effort to get either. The fight to permanently end expansion may be a long one, however for as long as I serve in Congress, I will fight any effort to advance an expansion of Piñon Canyon."
