COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Mayor Suthers today issued the below statement in response to the funding for Colorado Springs included in the 2022 federal appropriations omnibus bill. The bills passed the House last night and are expected to pass the Senate in the coming days.
“The City of Colorado Springs appreciates the efforts of Senators Bennet and Hickenlooper to secure federal funding that will benefit our community and specifically, our outstanding military installations. The new fitness center at Schriever Air Force Base is a great example of our state’s efforts to continue to make Colorado Springs an excellent place to live and serve. The improvements at the U.S. Air Force Academy show our commitment to the continued development of Air Force and Space Force officers who will play key roles in our nation’s defense.
