U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will host a press conference Sunday at Rocky Mountain National Park urging Congress to take action to fix national park infrastructure, according to a Friday announcement from the department.
While in Colorado, Zinke will also meet with state legislative leaders, the Southern Ute tribe and other stakeholders, the release states.
The visit will be his second to the national park.
The visit comes as the Interior Department has been moving forward on a proposal to relocate the headquarters of its U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which oversees millions of acres of federal land in the West, to a western state. Some Colorado leaders have proposed Grand Junction as a possible HQ location.
Also in Colorado, the Interior secretary is slated to address the Steamboat Institute’s 10th annual Freedom Conference and Film Festival on Aug. 10 in Steamboat Springs. The conservative think tank’s 10th annual event runs Aug. 9-11.
