This was among a new set of questions about the personal impact of addiction to drugs or alcohol in the . More than one in 10 Coloradans indicated that they had been addicted to prescription painkillers or heroin or were close to someone who had. |

Like all my CO colleagues, I too enjoy our open spaces and am dedicated to protecting them, but the 3rd District is more than just Denver's playground. The CORE Act would significantly impact many areas there and doesn't have the consensus needed to go further in the leg. process

As with any public lands bill, the CORE Act has a lot of ideas that most Coloradans agree on but it largely ignores many voices from the district it primarily would impact: mine. My full statement:

From Montrose County Commissioners: "This Board has never taken a formal position on the CORE Act nor has such a formal position been solicited by the proponents of the bill."

Today, I am still not assured that my constituent's voices have been heard, nor their concerns adequately addressed in the CORE Act. I am optimistic that through compromise, proper outreach and further collaboration, we can build that consensus. More work needs to be done.

Club 20: "While we understand that the CORE Act is a compilation of four previously introduced bills, we were quite disappointed that our members did not have the opportunity to weigh in on the language before it was introduced."

With broad local community consensus, the Colorado delegation has been successful in protecting public lands and passing balanced bills that address the unique needs of all Coloradans. The same cannot be said of the CORE Act in it's current form.

For months we have been told the CORE Act has broad local support by the communities most impacted by it. Previous bills in CO with that kind of support have had no trouble earning bipartisan support, most recently, Hermosa Creek and Chimney Rock Nat'l Monument.

Colorado’s 3rd District however is the district where most of his bill would have an impact, and I would be remiss if I didn’t speak out on behalf of some of my constituents who have yet to have their voices heard or their issues addressed in this process.

I applaud the CORE Act’s sponsor, and my Colorado colleague Joe Neguse, for his passion to protect public lands in Colorado. We share that passion.

I am optimistic that we can find a balanced public lands bill that reflects all these communities, but it can’t happen if one side is left out of the conversation from the beginning. More outreach needs to happen, negotiations need to take place, and compromises need to be made.

There is no doubt that the CORE Act has the support of many Coloradans in communities around the state. It is just as important to listen to the supporters of this bill as it is to listen to the input of Western Coloradans who are also affected by this bill.
