Rep. Gardner Tours Wind Farm

DENVER (AP) – Republican Rep. Cory Gardner is headed to an eastern Colorado wind farm to promote his efforts to increase domestic energy.

The freshman congressman planned to tour the Kit Carson Windpower Project Saturday.

Last week, Gardner joined the rest of Colorado’s congressional delegation in a letter to the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy urging the group to place its solar headquarters in Boulder. Last month, Gardner signed a similar plea to General Electric asking the company to locate a solar manufacturing plant in Boulder.

Gardner has angered some environmental activists, though. Some picketed his Colorado offices Friday because the Republican questions the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency to monitor carbon dioxide.
