Senator effective, bipartisan

Sen. Gardner has been characterized as “not doing anything” for Colorado.  Actually, he has done a lot for us.  I was most impressed with Ambassador Nikki Haley when she visited here a few months ago, sharing with us how well respected Sen. Gardner is in D.C. Here are a few of his accomplishments:

• Eight BILLS SIGNED INTO LAW: five by Obama, three by Trump. This is more than the entire current Colorado delegation combined.

• BROUGHT BLM HQ TO GRAND JUNCTION: After coming up with the idea to relocate BLM headquarters West in 2016 and introducing legislation, Gardner worked with the administration to make this a reality and the BLM headquarters will now be relocating to Grand Junction. 

• THE AMERICAN COMPETITIVENESS AND INNOVATION ACT: One of Gardner’s landmark pieces of legislation that overhauls our nation’s science programs and benefits several federal science labs headquartered in Colorado.  

• MORE THAN $300 MILLION FOR TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS: Gardner worked with his colleagues to secure money in infrastructure grants for the state and will continue to support efforts to improve and rebuild our state’s infrastructure. This $300 million includes I-25 North and South.

• PUBLIC LANDS: Gardner led the fight and cut a deal with members of both parties to reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which was a major win for Colorado’s public lands. Gardner has also passed several bills that expand Colorado’s public lands.

We need to keep Sen. Gardner in D.C. fighting for Colorado!
