Garfield County commissioners support Boebert efforts around energy jobs, infrastructure, 30×30 opposition
Garfield County commissioners are offering their unanimous support for two pieces of legislation and a petition for a hearing on a third being put forth by Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo.
The Board of County Commissioners on Monday signed letters of support for Boebert’s bill seeking to halt President Joe Biden’s 30×30 climate action plan.
Called the “30×30 Termination Act,” and referring to the Biden plan as a “land grab,” the Rifle Republican and freshman 3rd Congressional District representative is trying to build support in the House to stop the effort.
In addition, commissioners on Monday also agreed to sign letters in support of Boebert’s alternative American Infrastructure Modernization (AIM) Act, and a discharge petition to move her Protecting American Energy Jobs Act to the House floor.
Commissioner Mike Samson of Rifle said he recently met with ranchers and other landowners as part of a visit to the Cortez area, where he said there is significant concern over the 30×30 plan.
