Letter: Thanks to Sen. Udall for co-sponsoring bill to protect Thompson Divide

Sen. Udall has our undying gratitude for officially signing on as a co-sponsor to Sen. Michael Bennet’s bill, which 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, Senator Udall, for cosponsoring this critical bill.

Ann and Sam Johnson
