U.S. REPRESENTATIVE BOEBERT PUSHES FOR ANSWERS ON WESTERN DROUGHT FROM BIDEN BUREAUCRATS

Rep. Lauren Boebert joined Chairman of the Western Caucus Dan Newhouse, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Natural Resources Bruce Westerman, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, and 37 additional Members of Congress in sending a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Interior Secretary Deb Haaland requesting a briefing on the regime’s response to the Western drought crisis.

Rep. Lauren Boebert stated: “The most frustrating part about the drought crisis is that there are bipartisan actions we can take to reduce its severity. Unfortunately, Democrats are too focused on uprooting the entire country with their Green New Deal policies to work on commonsense solutions that help rural communities. To date, all we’ve got to address the drought crisis from the Biden regime is talking points with no real substance. While dam-busting Democrats are focusing on destroying water storage projects, I’m busy working on real solutions that put rural communities first.”

Background:


Rep. Boebert has made drought and water issues a priority. She introduced the Western Water Security Act, which prohibits federal water grabs, protects private property rights, and helps ensure an abundant supply of clean water for future generations. Rep. Boebert’s H.R. 1679 protects tribal groups, farmers, ranchers, agricultural districts, towns, small businesses, and other water users who rely on privately held water rights that have been put in jeopardy by the federal government.

Similarly, joined 126 other Members of Congress in sending a letter opposing the Biden administration’s plan to return the definition of “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) to Obama-era regulations, which would adversely affect thousands of American citizens. The 2015 WOTUS rule, issued by the Obama administration, was a massive land and water grab, attempting to assert Clean Water Act and federal jurisdiction over regions with even the most tenuous link to water resources.

Rep. Boebert also joined Republicans on the House Committee on Natural Resources to host a forum on combatting western drought that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimates will affect 74 million people this year alone.

Rep. Boebert is also focused on preserving and improving water storage and delivery projects and constructing new reservoirs.

Rep. Boebert is an active member of the House Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Oceans, and Wildlife.
