GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. After working with Mesa County residents, business, and leaders, U.S. Senator Mark Udall and Congressman Scott Tipton unveiled a bipartisan proposal to re-designate the Colorado National Monument as a National Park.

"I have not drafted a bill in the House of Representatives to change the designation of the Colorado National Monument," says Tipton. "Any potential legislation to change that status of the Monument first must be community-driven and locally supported."

"I strongly urge local residents, businesses and stakeholders to study this draft and provide us feedback," says Udall. "This step will hopefully provide us with a bipartisan, common-sense way forward to honor John Otto's original vision for the Colorado National Monument."
