Senators Bennet, Gardner introduce lands bill
Washington, D.C. — Colorado U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner joined Sens. Martin Heinrich, D-New Mexico, and Dean Heller, R-Nevada, to introduce a bill to reauthorize the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act. Before it expired in 2011, FLTFA allowed the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service in the western United States to use the proceeds from sales of certain federally designated areas to protect lands of exceptional conservation value.
"Colorado's heritage is rooted in the intrinsic value of our public lands," Bennet said in a statement. "The conservation of these lands is crucial to our tourism and outdoor recreation industries and to ensuring that future generations of Coloradans will be able to enjoy them as we do. This bill gives federal land management agencies additional tools to preserve important parts of our state and help boost economic development without cost to taxpayers."
"Conserving and protecting the public lands Coloradans cherish is a bipartisan priority," Gardner said in a statement. "Before its expiration, FLTFA was used to conserve land in the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, the White River National Forest and elsewhere in Colorado. FLTFA is a responsible program which benefits both conservation efforts and the private sector, leading to economic development while protecting critical public lands."
