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 ...

COLUMN: Multifront, coordinated approach sorely needed
REVERSING OPIOID ABUSE Multifront, coordinated approach sorely needed By Congressman Scott Tipton, Guest Columnist for the Pueblo Chieftain Widespread opioid abuse in the form of heroin or prescription pain medication is having a tragic impact on lives and families across the nation, including here in Colorado. According to the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention, 36 percent of drug poisoning deaths in our state involve prescription opioids. For every one of those deaths, 825 more people are already abusing or dependent on these powerfully addictive drugs. To make things worse, 14 percent of Coloradans between the ages of 18 and 25 misused prescription drugs last year, a habit that often leads to heroin use. Even newborn babies suffer from the effects of addiction. Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome occurs when opiates like heroin, oxycodone or methadone are abused during pregnancy, which has dramatically increased over the past 15 years. According to the Center for
Tipton Delivers Keynote Address on Small Business Access to Capital
Washington D.C.—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-3) delivered the keynote address at the Electronic Transaction Association’s Policy Day on Capitol Hill. Tipton, a former small business owner, stressed the important role online lending markets play in expanding access to capital and the ongoing concern regulatory burdens pose to the growth of small businesses nationwide. In discussing the current regulatory climate facing small businesses, Tipton highlighted the Dodd-Frank Act as one of the main drivers of onerous and duplicative regulations prohibiting growth for Main Street businesses. He discussed the unintended consequences of Dodd-Frank and noted that the law has burdened the financial sector with more than $24 billion in compliance costs. “Every small business owner knows that competition in the marketplace is unavoidable,” Tipton said after his speech. “Every day they work to expand their businesses, hire more people and gain a greater share of the market. Often ti
Tipton Statement on EPA Methane Rule
Washington D.C.—Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-3) issued the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a finalized rule on methane emissions from natural gas and oil extraction sites: “The finalized methane emissions rule will have a negligible impact on air quality, while creating a significant new regulatory paperwork and red tape burden on energy producers who are already increasingly capturing methane emissions through technological innovation and under several existing and effective state efforts,” said Tipton. “States are already leading the charge on methane collection efforts. The EPA should focus on enforcing existing laws, rather than promulgating new overreaching rules and regulations to stifle job creation and responsible energy production that Congress did not approve or pass.” ###
