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?

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 ...

House Passes Tipton Water Rights Bill with Bipartisan Support
House Passes Tipton Water Rights Bill WASHINGTON—Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed with bipartisan support Congressman Scott Tipton’s (R-CO) legislation to protect private water rights from uncompensated federal takings. Over the past decade, there have been numerous cases when the federal government has attempted to circumvent long-established state water law in order to take privately-held water rights without paying for them. By using the federal permit, lease, and land management process to extort water rights from those who hold rights under state law, the federal government is overreaching, violating private property rights, and the United States Constitution. The Water Rights Protection Act (H.R. 3189), which would prohibit this practice, is broadly supported by diverse state, local and national groups including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, American Farm Bureau, and many Colorado counties and conservation districts.

Tipton Applauds Expanded U.S. Potato Exports Announcement
PUEBLO, CO—Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO), today, praised the announcement that U.S. farmers will now be able to expand potato exports into Mexico. The Mexican government published the final regulations today. Since being elected to Congress Tipton has worked to advance policies that open up new markets for Colorado agriculture. To that end he has been involved in work with the Mexican consulate to increase San Luis Valley potato exports to that country. Tipton has used his chairmanship of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade to shine light on the issue and push for increased U.S. potato exports. “Today’s announcement that farmers will now be able to export their potatoes into Mexico—where there is a real demand—is truly welcome news, and is something Colorado’s agriculture community has been working toward for a long time,” said Tipton. “The fact that every $1 billion in agricultural exports supports over 8,000 American jobs speaks to how i
Tipton, Bennet, Udall, Join Governor, Pueblo Leaders Urging EPA to Assist in Smelter Cleanup
Lawmakers request Superfund designation to remove lead and arsenic contamination Pueblo, CO – Colorado U.S. Senators Michael Bennet and Mark Udall and U.S. Representative Scott Tipton are urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to include the Colorado Smelting Company site in Pueblo in the EPA’s Superfund program.  The EPA Superfund program was established to clean up abandoned hazardous waste sites.  Governor Hickenlooper, the Pueblo City Council, and the Pueblo County Board of Commissioners are also pushing the EPA to help with the cleanup. From 1883 to 1908 the Colorado Smelting Company contaminated parts of Pueblo with lead, arsenic, and other heavy metals, and recent soil tests have confirmed that the contamination has spread to surrounding neighborhoods. In some neighborhoods, contamination levels were found to be three times higher than average.  In a joint letter to the EPA’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, the lawmakers wrote, “Last month, we
Tipton Statement on Status of Colorado National Monument
GRAND JUNCTION, CO—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement on the status of the Colorado National Monument and the next steps in the process.  “There is no question that the Colorado National Monument is one of our state’s most scenic natural wonders and plays an important role in the lives of all who are blessed to live in the region.  It’s because of this that we have engaged in a thoughtful process to help determine what the best outcome might be for the Monument and the people of Mesa County. “When it comes to our public lands, the Monument included, I believe that any change in designation or management should be done through a bottom-up process, driven by community support and broad consensus.   “Because the Monument is so geographically intimate to communities in Mesa County, this is especially true and the reason it’s critical that we gather abundant feedback from those that live there on any future proposals to change its status.
