Congressman John T. Salazar, Third District of Colorado

Congressman Salazar's Funding Priorities for Financial Services

As a new member of the Appropriations Committee, I have new oversight responsibilities for the spending of federal dollars, as well as an increased role in the prioritization of federal spending.

For too long, the process of Congressional funding requests lacked transparency and accountability, leading some members of Congress to abuse it and the public trust. Since assuming the majority in 2007, Congressional Democrats have significantly reformed the process, including ensuring that every American can easily determine which member of Congress has submitted a requests.

Below you will find a list of my funding requests for the Financial Services Appropriations bill.

Montrose Higher Education and Technology Park
City of Montrose
433 1st Street
Montrose, CO 81401

To provide funding for the Montrose Higher Education and Technology Park which will establish the technological infrastructure to support and generate economic growth. The project will expand higher educational opportunities with additional classroom, laboratory and student common area spaces. The technology park will provide the opportunity for entrepreneurial development and technology transfer. The planned partnership with the Colorado institution of higher learning will allow that institution to build its capabilities on the Western Slope and help students access local employers.
