This week, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced its plans to stifle oil and gas development across Colorado on 8.3 million acres of BLM-managed and 27 million acres of subsurface mineral estate under the guise of “safeguarding” big game migration.
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert said, “Biden’s latest Colorado land grab is another example of this radical regime’s deliberate assault on American energy and the economy. While Coloradans are facing historically high gas prices, the Biden regime is using every excuse and tactic in the book to block responsible domestic energy production. Instead of creating affordable gas and jobs under the highest standards in the world, Biden would rather fly with his entourage overseas to beg and fist bump the Saudi Prince to try and convince him to produce more foreign oil. Mayor Pete’s solution for high gas prices is to tell Americans to just buy a new electric vehicle. They couldn’t be more out of touch. I encourage everyone that is tired of wildfires and high gas prices to submit a comment in opposition to this Colorado land grab.”
This week, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) noticed a reckless land grab that will block oil and gas development amongst other important activities on 8.3 million acres of public land and an additional 27 million acres of subsurface mineral estate. As a result, responsible oil and gas development will be halted, active forest management and important timber projects will be prevented, and Coloradans will have higher gas prices and more wildfires.
Americans can submit comments in opposition to this terrible proposal through September 2, 2022, by clicking here or mailing a letter to BLM Colorado State Office, Attn: Big Game Corridor Amendment/EIS, 2850 Youngfield St., Lakewood, CO 80215.
Since taking office, Congresswoman Boebert has strived to increase energy production and fought federal land grabs. Responsibly developing the natural resources of the United States is critical to energy independence.
