The Trust for Public Land on the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Economy Act

October 31, 2019

Colorado is a national leader in the recreation economy and ensuring access to the outdoors for all,” said Jim Petterson, Colorado & Southwest Director at The Trust for Public Land. “New wilderness and recreation areas mean that more Coloradans can enjoy the immense benefits of nature. I’m thrilled that the U.S. House passed the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Economy Act today and it is one step closer to becoming law.  A big thanks to Congressman Neguse and Senator Bennet for their leadership.
