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.”
