Today, the United States House of Representatives passed the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009. Among the pieces of individual legislation in the bill were five Colorado-based efforts sponsored by Congressman John Salazar. The overriding goal of these bills is to utilize Colorado's natural resources while protecting them for future generations to enjoy.
"This is one of the proudest days of my legislative career," said Congressman Salazar. "These bills represent years of work and input from communities across my district. I am honored to do my part to help make these projects become a reality. They will help protect Colorado's land, water, natural beauty for generations to come."
