Happy Public Lands Day, Colorado! Colorado is the most beautiful state in America – not only because of our beautiful public lands, but our shared commitment to pass them on to the next generation. I hope you're getting outside and enjoying them today!

Election workers deserve our respect for everything they do for our democracy. But they are facing an unprecedented rise in threats. I introduced a bill with @SenAmyKlobuchar to make threatening or intimidating election workers a federal crime. democracydocket.com/analysis…

Coloradans deserve to know the water they and their children drink is safe. This bill will cut through the red tape in Washington and alleviate some of the financial burden that Colorado homeowners face when replacing their pipes. denverpost.com/2022/09/22/se…

In 2006, dark money in our elections was under $5M. By 2020, it topped $1 billion. Why? Citizens United. It's distorting our democracy and corrupting our politics. We urgently need more transparency and accountability. That's why I voted today to advance the #DISCLOSEAct.

We secured $4 billion in the #InflationReductionAct to address the 22-year drought we face in the American West. Today, I led my colleagues from Colorado and New Mexico to urge @usbr to direct those resources toward permanent, long-term solutions. coloradonewsline.com/briefs/…

Ten years ago today, Chimney Rock became a national monument. The history of this archaeological and cultural treasure dates back before 900 A.D. – and thanks to the tireless work of Coloradans and our Tribes, future generations will be able to enjoy it for years to come.

Today’s bipartisan ratification of the Kigali Amendment strengthens America’s global competitiveness and climate leadership. It will reduce our dependence on foreign imports from China, further protect our planet, and create jobs that strengthen our economy.

Today is Black Women’s Equal Pay Day. It’s outrageous that Black women must work 18 months to earn 58 cents for every dollar that white men make in one year. Black women deserve equal pay for equal work. It’s time to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Medicare-X will cover 1M more Americans & save households over $10B. With the #InflationReductionAct, we’ve built on the progress of the ACA to cover more people & reduce prescription drug costs. Let's finish what the ACA started & pass a public option. urban.org/research/publicati…

Joe P. Martinez was the first Hispanic and first Coloradan awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery during WWII. This #HispanicHeritageMonth, let’s honor those who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our democracy and freedoms. nationalww2museum.org/war/ar…

One of the best steps we can take to lower food costs for families is to modernize our visa system for farmworkers. @MikeCrapo and I are working on a bill to do exactly that. Because when farmers & ranchers don't have skilled labor, Coloradans pay the price at the grocery store.

.@SenatorBennet and I are proud to announce that, thanks to the historic passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Rocky Mountain Forest region will receive a significant portion of the $65 million allocated to invest in water quality, roads, trails, & fish habitats! 🏞️
