Bennet: Army's decision to pursue more litigation sends hostile message to farmers and ranchers in southern Colorado

Colorado

On Nov. 10 in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Army Secretary John McHugh, Michael Bennet urged the Army to acknowledge the flawed nature of its 2007 environmental impact analysis on the proposed expansion at Pinon Canyon and asked that the Army immediately withdraw its plans to appeal the U.S. District Court's recent decision on the matter.

"The Army's decision to move forward with more litigation sends a hostile message to the farmers and ranchers in southern Colorado: the Army is more concerned about winning than about repairing this relationship over the long-term," wrote Bennet.

"In short, the Army has nothing to lose by acknowledging that its 2007 study, which many in southern Colorado saw as an underhanded attempt at justifying expansion, was seriously flawed. The only things the Army stands to accomplish by continuing to fight are the further engenderment of anger, frustration, and misunderstanding," continued Bennet.
