Opinion: Water solutions are a priority
We all know that out here in western Colorado, water is life. It sustains our agriculture, powers our outdoor recreation economy and is the keystone of the beautiful environment we all cherish. All of us also know that our state’s water future faces immense challenges; from ongoing megadrought in the West, overuse of the Colorado River by California and Arizona, and much more. … That is why the state legislature, among other public and private entities, have been hard at work on a multifaceted approach to protect Colorado’s water future. The 2023 legislative session was one of the most productive and historic sessions for water in recent memory. As your state senator, I made sure that water was at the forefront of my colleagues’ minds and am proud to have led several successful water measures.
