Today, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House showed they believe cities can tell rural America what to do with land in our backyard without our input.
Boulder and Denver liberals, Joe Neguse and Diana DeGette, attached two amendments to H.R.6395, the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. These amendments attempt to limit use of nearly 2 million acres of land without input from local stakeholders.
The worst part of all is that Representatives Neguse and DeGette are pursuing a land grab under cover of national defense. We all know the NDAA is essential to funding our military, ensuring our borders are safe, and pursuing our national security. If Neguse and DeGette’s bills are worthy of consideration, they should run them on their own merits, get local buy-in, and not hide behind our vital national defense.
“This land grab by Denver’s liberals is a perfect example why rural Colorado so
desperately needs a strong voice fighting for them in Washington, D.C.,” said Lauren
