Natural Resources & Environment 


This is the area that needs the most attention as this is the Department that is currently turning Colorado into California.  The Lopez Administration will make sure that we stop that and I will focus on making Colorado a state we can all be proud of once again.  


This department oversees  all of Colorado's natural resources.  It oversees the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, the Division of Reclamation, Mining, and Safety, the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission; the State Board of Land Commissioners, the Division of Parks and Wildlife; the Colorado Water Conservation Board, and the Water Board Resource Division.


 If you want to know what our current governor is going to do with the activities from this department just look at what California is doing and that is exactly what he is going to do.  There are several coal mines that are scheduled to be closed with no consideration as to the economic devastation the closures will cause to the families in the surrounding communities. It is wrong to sacrifice the quality of lives of hard-working men and women in rural Colorado in hopes of removing the “phantom of climate change”.  


The Lopez Administration will bring balance to the conversation of climate change and ensure that my administration does not negatively impact the livelihoods of the families throughout Colorado.
