A bill to pave the way for a workforce housing project in Summit County ended its yearlong congressional journey shortly after 1 p.m. Friday, July 25, when President Barack Obama signed into law the Lake Hill Administrative Site Affordable Housing Act.
The legislation, first carried by Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, in the U.S. House of Representatives, and later by Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., in the Senate, conveys 40 acres of land from the U.S. Forest Service to Summit County. The parcel is located between Interstate 70 and the Dillon Dam Road near the towns of Frisco and Dillon. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., was a cosponsor of the bill.
Summit County Commissioner Dan Gibbs, who has championed the legislation throughout the lengthy process, said he was tipped off Friday morning that the bill might find its way to Obamas desk. When he later learned the legislation indeed received the presidents signature, Gibbs said he felt a sense of relief and excitement.
Its so unique to have a bill that directly impacts one community in a positive way, and rarely do they ever get passed, Gibbs said. I cant thank Sen. Udall and Congressman Polis enough for listening to our concerns in Summit County and turning our concerns into action.

Taking park land for housing for democrat voters...
When did he find the time to locate a pen?
How did the federal government initially acquire the land in question? Was it unconstitutionally seized by the feds by the mere stroke of a pen? Or did the feds pay the state with consent of state as required by the Constitution’s Clause 17 of Section 8 of Article I, or did the feds pay an individual as required by the 5th Amendment?
I'd imagine there would be some upset environmentalists.
Another precedent for the President?
So are they going to dump illegals here????
