Dear Friend,

Earlier this week, a bipartisan majority of the Senate came together to reject the President's Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, an attempt to massively expand the federal government’s role in the management of local water. Instead of seizing an opportunity to meaningfully reduce the scope of burdensome regulations squeezing our economy, President Obama vetoed our resolution. Today, I was proud to cast a vote to support overturning that veto.

WOTUS has already been put on hold by the courts for a simple reason: it represents a massive, unconstitutional takeover of ponds, streams, and ditches which will be burdensome and costly for our nation’s farmers and ranchers. The responsibility for managing Colorado’s water should be left to state and local governments along with our water districts, not with the federal government through overreaching regulations like WOTUS. I will continue to forcefully oppose WOTUS and take any steps possible to block its implementation.

Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired all Americans to see the best in ourselves, and his life remains an example to which we should all aspire. Our country is at its best when we embody the values that Dr. King professed: respect, tolerance, and love. I join all Coloradans in celebrating Dr. King’s life, honoring his memory, and resolving anew to live up to our highest, noblest ideals.

I was honored to participate in this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day Marade in Denver and help commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. King.


Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to to meet with Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock in my office in Washington to discuss city priorities and initiatives.
