Bennet Statement on House Passage of Bill to Open Legal Access to Manitou Incline Trail

Bennet Continues Push for Companion Bill in Senate

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement on House passage of a bill that would help open access to the Manitou Incline Trail. The bill was introduced by U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn.

“Access to public lands is one of the reasons people both move to and visit the Pikes Peak region. Developing a safe Manitou Incline Trail will contribute to the quality of life and to tourism as an important economic driver in the area,” Bennet said.

“The House passage of Representative Lamborn’s bill is an important step. I look forward to the completion of this process in the Senate, which will help local leaders create safer conditions and new recreational opportunities.”

Bennet has introduced a companion bill in the Senate, which has the support of area leaders and the Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs communities.
