H.R.6547: Colorado Energy Prosperity Act

The Colorado Energy Prosperity Act passed the House as part of the Interior Appropriations Bill and prohibits the Bureau of Land Management from locking up 1.6 million acres of land in Colorado from responsible oil and gas production. The BLM’s 1.6-million-acre land grab is another blatant overreach designed to dismantle the fossil fuel industry, increase gas prices, and force a green transition.

HR2366: 90-Day Review Act

Also part of HR1 which was successfully passed by the House, the 90-Day Review Act decreases the amount of time that someone or an organization can file for a judicial review of a permit or major infrastructure project from 150 days to 90 days. This would be a huge boost to getting major infrastructure projects moving instead of being bogged down by the threat of litigation from bad actors.

The Pueblo Jobs Act is a critical piece of legislation for the Colorado economy that will create over 1,000 new jobs following the closing of the Pueblo Chemical Depot.

HR2746: Trust The Science Act

In response to decisions that kept grey wolves listed as an endangered species by the Biden Administration, Congresswoman Boebert partnered with Rep. Tom Tiffany of Wisconsin to introduce the Trust The Science Act and delist the grey wolf as an endangered species. This would get the federal government out of the way of states taking action to allow ranchers and farmers to protect their livestock from being killed by grey wolves. This legislation was supported by a multitude of ranching and farming advocacy groups, including the Colorado Farm Bureau and the Colorado Livestock Association. While this bill would not immediately produce a fix to the problem in Colorado due to Proposition 114 and the state’s listing of the grey wolf, it has raised awareness of the issue and would remove the federal government as a roadblock to progress. This legislation passed the House both as a standalone bill and also as a provision included in the Interior Appropriations Bill.

This bill passed the full House of Representatives as standalone legislation.

HR3675: Western Water Accelerated Revenue Repayment Act

The WWARR Act allows water users who currently have infrastructure debts or leases with the federal government to pay off their amount due ahead of schedule. This not only allows these users to get out from under the bureaucracy and red tape of the government, but brings in more federal revenue at a quicker rate. The bill provides stability to water users and was supported by a wide coalition of stakeholders including the Colorado Water Congress and the Family Farm Alliance, which led to its passage through the House Natural Resources Committee in July.

The bill has a broad coalition of support from local stakeholders and passed through the House Natural Resources Committee unanimously.
