Colorado Senate Bill 15-232 was defeated on April 28 on a narrow 18-17 vote. CWF applauded the outcome and thanked Senator Crowder for voting against the bill. Earlier the bill had passed out of the Agricultural, Natural Resources and Energy Committee on April 23 by 1 vote. It was introduced on March 24 to create a Colorado Federal Land Management Commission to study the transfer of public lands in Colorado managed by BLM and US Forest Service from the federal government to the state. CWF firmly opposes this bill and testified at the hearing.
