WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Paul A Gosar, D.D.S, (AZ-04), La Paz County Supervisors D. L. Wilson, Holly Irwin, Duce Minor, Yavapai County Supervisor Tom Thurman, Bullhead City Mayor Tom Brady, and University President Dr. P. Barry Butler released the following statements applauding the signing of S.47, by President Trump that included seven bills that will benefit Arizona:

U.S. Representative Paul Gosar (AZ-04) said: "Today, is a great day for Arizona as President Trump signed five of my bills and two other bills that are good for the state into public law as part of a historic lands package. These victories are bottom-up initiatives brought to us by county supervisors and people on the ground. My five Arizona bills included in the package remove an outdated restriction limiting economic growth for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Yavapai County, convey nearly 6,000 acres back to La Paz county to allow for new economic development opportunities in a county with only 5% private land, benefit local communities and families in Cornville by allowing for expansion of Windmill Park, allow Bullhead city to provide new recreational opportunities and address the Bureau of Reclamation maintenance backlog to ensure an abundant supply of clean water and power for future generations.   more...
WASHINGTON, D.C -- U.S Representative Paul Gosar, D.D.S. introduced H.R. 1190, which aims to prohibit an illegal alien from being eligible for postsecondary education benefits that are not available to all citizens and nationals of the United States.

“It is despicable that taxpayer funded institutions are blatantly ignoring the law and putting illegal aliens ahead of American students,” said Congressman Gosar. “American students should not be cut out of opportunities being offered to illegal aliens. Closing this loophole would ensure that American students are provided the same opportunities and benefits that are granted to illegal aliens.”

“The Bureau of Reclamation’s aging infrastructure is in desperate need of repair,” said Congressman Gosar. “This bicameral, bipartisan legislation allows for a thorough inventory of BOR’s assets and prioritizes major repairs in order to ensure future generations have access to an abundant supply of clean water and power.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after introducing H.R. 274, the Cottonwood Land Exchange Act, at the request of Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, in order to facilitate a land exchange between the County and Coconino National Forest near Cottonwood, Arizona for the purposes of connecting separated tracts and consolidating land:

“The Cottonwood Land Exchange Act is common sense legislation that will benefit local communities and families in Cornville by allowing for expansion of Windmill Park,” said Congressman Gosar. “The consolidation of the multiple checkerboards of land will yield significant benefits to the people of Arizona. This legislation is result of years of collaboration between Yavapai County officials, community members and the Forest Service.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, members of the Congressional Western Caucus released statements rebuking the introduction of H.R.8, Speaker Pelosi's gun control bill: Chairman Paul Gosar (AZ-04): "It should come as no surprise that Speaker’s Pelosi’s first bill of the Congress attempts to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of the American people. A federal background check would not have prevented the Tucson shooting eight years ago. Further, criminals don’t follow the law, so implementing universal background checks won’t stop criminals from shooting people or obtaining weapons. Besides trampling on the Constitution, the only other thing the Pelosi gun grab would accomplish is to make it tougher for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their fam

ilies. House Democrats’ radical agenda is detached from reality. Fortunately, this bill isn’t even worth the paper it was printed on and if it somehow manages to make it through the House and Senate, I am confident it will get a big red veto stamp from President Trump."

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement after two of his important active forest management policies were signed into law by President Donald J. Trump:

“Following one of the most devastating wildfire seasons in our nation’s history, it is critical that we do everything in our power to provide the Forest Service and public land management agencies with the tools they need to reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfires and protect our communities," said Congressman Gosar. "One life lost is too many, let alone 88 like we saw in California’s Camp Fire. Years of mismanagement has left our forests vulnerable to insects and disease and ripe for catastrophic wildfires. This flawed approach causes us to spend billions of dollars on the backend to suppress fire, neglecting hazardous fuels reduction and putting our communities at increasing risk of catastrophic fire. While the Forest Service still needs more authorities from Congress, including things like Balance of Harms and Action/No Action policies, I am pleased that we were able to add two more tools to President Trump and his Administration's toolbox today.”
