U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner’s Great American Outdoors Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday afternoon by a vote of 310-107.
This is a major victory for the Republican Senator from Yuma who convinced everyone from Nancy Pelosi to President Trump to support his legislation that will preserve Colorado’s public lands for generations to come.
Prior to the vote, President Trump weighed in on Twitter and urged the House to support Gardner’s bill.
We MUST protect our National Parks for our children and grandchildren. I am calling on the House to pass the GREAT AMERICAN OUTDOORS ACT today. Thanks @SenCoryGardner and @SteveDaines for all your work on this HISTORIC BILL!

After the bill passed, Gardner tweeted a video saying this is “a historic day for conservation.”

As always is the case when it comes to Gardner, Colorado Democrats found something to complain about, but for the vast majority of Coloradans who care about public lands more than politics, Gardner once again delivered for his home state.
