Brockmeier: Browns Canyon something Democrats and Republicans can agree on

Browns Canyon something Democrats and Republicans can agree on

I am so relieved that Browns Canyon is one step closer to being designated as a national monument. In this season of constant bombardment by political commercials with each party attacking the other, it is easy to develop a political apathy. However, today’s development of Browns Canyon passing the national parks subcommittee hearing gives me some hope. There has to be some issue that both Democrats and Republicans can agree on, and I think that protecting Browns Canyon can be one of those.

It’s really a common-sense initiative that would not only protect an iconic Colorado landscape but also help to boost the local economy. A bill so widely supported seems like it would be something both parties can get behind.

A recent poll showed that 77 percent of Coloradans support the designation of Browns Canyon as a national monument. My hope is that our congressmen and -women will refrain from any partisan bickering and support what their constituents already know, that designating Browns Canyon as a national monument is good for Colorado.
