Rep. Tipton: A Great Day for Grand Junction
WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) released the following statement after it was reported that the Bureau of Land Management had zeroed in on Grand Junction as a finalist for the headquarter relocation:
“Today is a great day for Grand Junction, the Western Slope, and for every believer that the federal government should be closer to the people whom its decisions affect. Colorado’s Third Congressional district serves as a microcosm of almost every land-management issue in the American West. As a native of Colorado’s Third Congressional District, Sec. Bernhardt knows the lands well and I applaud his leadership on making this move a reality. I look forward to seeing the final plan and congratulate the community of Grand Junction for this great opportunity.”
Tipton has worked on bringing the BLM West since 2016 and introduced legislation to authorize move in the 115th Congress. Details of the announcement are expected tomorrow.
