Wins, Land Grabs, The Wall And Upcoming Events

By Congressional Documents & Publications

Great week for Arizona! Last week, President Trump signed a historic federal lands package into law in the form of S.47. This legislation had seven bills that directly benefit communities in Arizona, 5 of which were my bills. These victories are bottom-up initiatives brought to us by county supervisors and people on the ground. My five Arizona bills included in the package remove an outdated restriction limiting economic growth for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Yavapai County, convey nearly 6,000 acres back to La Paz County to allow for new economic development opportunities in a county with only 5% private land, benefit local communities and families in Cornville by allowing for expansion of Windmill Park, allow Bullhead city to provide new recreational opportunities and address the Bureau of Reclamation maintenance backlog to ensure an abundant supply of clean water and power for future generations.

Do you support the wall?

As the fight to secure our southern border with a physical barrier continues I would like to get your input on the issue. Last month our country saw the highest number of migrants on our southern border. Reports stated that more than 76,000 migrants ILLEGALLY crossed the border without authorization in February, an 11-year high. A Customs and Border Protection agent described our current system at a “breaking point.” Do you support more funding for a wall on our southern border?

Land Grab Theatrics

Last week, I joined my colleagues in calling out House Natural Resources Democrats on their land grab hearing theatrics. President Obama locked up 553.6 million acres and he himself designated 66% of the entire acreage locked up by all presidents combined since 1906. Let me repeat that, one man with the stroke of his pen locked up 553.6 million acres of land and water. The federal government owns too much land and is struggling to maintain the land currently under federal control. Despite this fact, House Democrats and extremist groups keep trying to grow the federal estate and lock away more land. No president should have exclusive authority to circumvent Congress and singlehandedly rip away millions of acres of land and water from the American people and indigenous communities.
