Legislative

On September 18, 2014 the House Committee on Natural Resources altered the Hermosa Creek Watershed Protection Act as created by the Hermosa Creek Workgroup and introduced by Senator Bennet (SB 841) and Rep. Tipton (HR 1839).  The changes seriously revised the intent and many foundational tenets of the legislation that were created by consensus within the Workgroup detailed in the Hermosa fact sheet.

YOUR ACTION is needed to restore the legislation to accurately reflect the language that was crafted by the Hermosa Creek Workgroup – read the history of the process. Urge Rep. Tipton to support the consensus that our community worked to create over many years because it specifically balances the needs and uses of all those who work and recreate in the Hermosa Creek watershed.

Call Representative Tipton’s D.C. Office: 202.225.4761

E-mail Rep. Tipton through his website

Write a Letter to the Editor to publicly urge Rep. Tipton to support the original community consensus.
