COMMERCE CITY, Colorado - Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar returned to his home state of Colorado today to view possible economic stimulus projects at chemical and nuclear weapons Superfund sites that are transitioning into national wildlife refuges.

"The President's recovery and reinvestment plan will help pump life into our economy by creating jobs for working Americans but it will also pump life into our national wildlife refuges, national parks and other public lands by allowing us to undertake much-needed maintenance and improvement projects for visitors and wildlife alike," Salazar said.

Salazar toured Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, a Superfund site located just east of downtown Denver.
