Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet joined 224 members of Congress in filing an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in support of the Administration's executive actions in the United States v.

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet continues to push for the construction of the Arkansas Valley Conduit. He is cosponsoring a bill that allows the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservation District to more easily pay for its portion of the Conduit's construction costs.
