Small Businesses Need Skilled Workers

With 14 million Americans out of work, it might be surprising to hear that employers are having trouble filling certain positions. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows 2.7 million jobs remained unfilled in the U.S. in August, and employers are reporting having a hard time finding skilled workers to add to their payroll. ManpowerGroup's 2011 Talent Shortage Survey, released earlier this summer, found that 34% of employers are experiencing difficulties filling positions due to lack of available talent. Of this group, 24% of employers said they aren't finding candidates available in ...

Americans are paying millions of dollars in fees for access to land that we already own and pay taxes to support.Where has that money gone? Previous audits have identified serious fiscal irregularities, including violations of federal and USDA accounting standards. There is reason to believe that these problems persist and have in ...

Rep. Scott Tipton: Patients, not politics

We must keep the promise to our senior citizens by protecting Medicare and Social Security. Currently, Medicare is on an unsustainable path. If Washington fails to act, the Medicare Trustees — made up primarily of members of President Obama's cabinet — report that Medicare will be bankrupt by 2024. I support a plan that ensures today's seniors and those a decade away from retiring receive all of their benefits in full, while strengthening and securing Medicare for future generations. I have held town hall meetings focusing on Medicare and Social Security, visited dozens of ...

Column: The President’s Final SOTU, Turning the Lights Out on Affordable Energy
By Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) I recently attended my sixth State of the Union Address as a Member of Congress. I was hoping this year, in the President’s final address, to hear him speak of some opportunities for us to work together to address issues that truly affect Colorado and the rest of the country.  He did speak to overreaching regulations, which we agree on. However, the majority of his speech was more ideologically driven rhetoric that has regrettably defined the President’s go-it-alone approach.  That propensity to run roughshod over the people’s representatives, and the Constitution, is at the core of his legacy, and I was thinking back to a number of examples over the years. One great example of that overreach that will hurt Colorado’s economy, families and local communities is the EPA’s so-called “Clean Power” regulations, imposed by bureaucrats in the name of addressing climate change. As is often the case with cookie-cutter solutions launched by Was
Gardner, Bennet, Tipton Release Discussion Draft to Facilitate Good Samaritan Orphan Mine Cleanup
Washington – Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Representative Scott Tipton (CO-03) today released a draft of the Good Samaritan Cleanup of Orphan Mines Act, legislation designed to allow Good Samaritans, such as the mining industry, state agencies, local governments, nonprofits, and other groups, the opportunity to clean up the environment and improve water quality in and around orphan mines. The Colorado Members look forward to working with the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works to move this discussion draft forward and reach consensus on a bipartisan Good Samaritan bill. According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), in 2008 more than 160,000 estimated abandoned hardrock mines existed across the United States, and at least 33,000 of them pose environmental or safety concerns. These orphan mine sites continuously pollute waters and land, and many sites do not have past or current responsible owners. However, there are Good
Tipton Votes to Defend Law-Abiding Businesses from Operation Choke Point
WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) voted in the House to pass legislation to protect law-abiding businesses from being unfairly targeted by federal regulators using highly subjective criteria to determine fraud risk. The bipartisan Financial Services Institutions Customer Protection Act (H.R. 766), of which Tipton is a co-sponsor, would effectively end the highly controversial Operation Choke Point which has prohibited many legitimate, law-abiding businesses from accessing consumer financial services. Prior to the vote, Tipton spoke in favor of H.R. 766 on the House floor. Watch Here The text of Tipton’s remarks as prepared for delivery follows: I want to thank my colleague from Missouri, Representative Luetkemeyer, for offering this piece of legislation under consideration on the floor today. The bipartisan Financial Institution Customer Protection Act prevents federal banking agencies from pressuring banks and credit unions to terminate customer accounts with leg
Tipton, Murphy Lead Bipartisan Letter to Protect Community Capital Access from New FASB Regulations
WASHINGTON—Reps. Scott Tipton (R-CO) and Patrick Murphy (D-FL) led a bipartisan letter to the Chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), signed by 60 of their colleagues, to voice concerns that the FASB “accounting standards update” will severely limit small banks and credit unions from making loans and provide access to capital in their communities. The loss of capital access for small businesses and families would have a devastating impact on local economies. The text of the letter follows: Mr. Russell G. Golden Chairman Financial Accounting Standards Board 401 Merritt 7 Norwalk, CT  06856 Dear Chairman Golden: We write to express our strong concern about an imminent action by your organization. The Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB) “accounting standards update” (or “ASU”), titled Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Subtopic 825-15), would comprehensively revise the way all lenders set aside reserve funds in anticipation of possible
