Press Statement: CORE Act reintroduced
DENVER — Today, the Colorado Outdoor Recreation & Economy (CORE) Act, the most significant and broadly supported effort to protect Colorado’s public lands, was reintroduced in the 117th Congress. This bill is a decade in the making and — with pro-conservation majorities in the House and Senate — Coloradans have a new opportunity to see this popular bill become law. The CORE Act will protect approximately 400,000 acres of iconic public lands for future generations.
Conservation Colorado Executive Director Kelly Nordini released the following statement:
“The long-anticipated CORE Act is a cornerstone of Colorado’s part in the effort to conserve 30 percent of our U.S. land and water by 2030 — a bold and achievable goal that requires immediate action. Senator Bennet, Representative Neguse, and countless local leaders have worked for years to craft a strong bill that protects some of Colorado’s most popular, iconic, and historic places. Our new pro-conservation Congressional majority should act swiftly to pass it.”
