Gardner Statement on Browns Canyon Designation

Washington, D.C. – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement on President Obama’s planned designation of Browns Canyon as a National Monument:

“Browns Canyon is a national treasure with a long history of bipartisan support in Colorado. Senator Udall in particular was a champion of this beautiful site, and his legacy of protecting Colorado’s landscapes is to be commended. This monument will stand in lasting tribute to his public service. My preference is always to work through the legislative process, and in the coming days I will be introducing legislation to ensure that Colorado’s state and local interests have a seat at the table in discussions about Browns Canyon.”
