Short Description of Activity

Continue to work with coalition partners to advance the CORE Act first as a stand alone bill, then as a public lands package and ultimately as amendment to the NDAA. Wrote and submitted LTEs. Participated in CORE Act Day of Action and initiated and coordinated Capitol Tree “rally” in Ouray (both submitted as separate activity reports) Presented the CORE Act slideshow to the Ridgway Ouray Community Council (ROCC affiliate of WCA) 2020 Annual meeting


Published or provided text for LTEs that were published in 4 newspapers Ouray, Delta, Crested Butte, Gunnison – 2 in Ouray; one from a veteran Broad for Veterans Day; the other as part of the Capital Tree event. Sadly the CORE Act was not included in the final NDAA bill (due to Senate opposition.) So our champion will reintroduce into the 117th Congress. The ROCC presentation went great with engagement and good questions. Note that 21 of 29 hours below are attributed to one member and about 6 to another.
