Letter: Udall steps up for Thompson Divide

Udall steps up for Thompson Divide

Sen. Mark Udall, you have our undying gratitude for officially signing on as a co-sponsor to Sen. Michael Bennet’s bill that affords permanent protection to the Thompson Divide area by withdrawing unleased acreage and creating a mechanism to purchase back leases.

As you know, there is overwhelming support for this bill in the Roaring Fork Valley. By signing on as a co-sponsor for the bill, you have demonstrated that you recognize the importance the Thompson Divide area represents for the local environment, economy and recreation. We look forward to seeing this bill going to committee and passing expeditiously.

Thanks you again, Sen. Udall, for cosponsoring this critical bill.

Ann and Sam Johnson
