The people of Colorado elected Mark Udall to the U.S. Senate in 2008. Prior to that, he represented the state’s 2nd Congressional District for five terms (from 1999-08). He also served one term in the Colorado State Legislature as a member of the General Assembly (1997-99), representing the 13th District, which encompassed the community of Longmont and parts of southern Boulder County.
In the U.S. Senate, Mark serves on three committees: Armed Services, Energy and Natural Resources, and the Select Committee on Intelligence. Reinforcing his priority of protecting our Western lands, Mark chairs the National Parks Subcommittee of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. He is also proud to serve as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Strategic Forces. In that role, Mark has oversight responsibility for all U.S. military space, intelligence and cyberdefense efforts, and our ballistic missile defense and nuclear weapons programs. Mark’s committee assignments give him a platform to address many issues important to Colorado, including national security, energy, the economy, clean energy jobs, and natural resources.
