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 ...

Congressman Scott Tipton(R-CO) is asking his House colleagues to joinhim incalling on the Government Accountability Office to conduct a thorough review andaudit of the Federal Recreation Fee programs operated by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. 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 ...

Tipton Voices Concern about Potential One-Size-Fits-All Land Management Approach, Says Local Voices Must be Consulted
WASHINGTON D.C. — During a hearing in the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands, Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) voiced concerns about H.R. 1349 and its potential to lead to a one-size-fits-all approach to bicycle use in Wilderness Areas. Tipton had the opportunity to question an expert witness on the potential impact of this legislation. H.R. 1349 would amend the Wilderness Act to ensure that the use of bicycles, wheelchairs, strollers, and game carts is not prohibited across designated Wilderness Areas.  In his opening statement before the committee, Tipton said, “I have long supported a balanced approach to federal land management, one that supports multiple uses, keeps public lands accessible, and prioritizes the voice and wishes of the local communities. The biggest concerns that I hear out of my district are about the one-size-fits-all approach that we’ve seen from the federal land management agencies over the last several years.” During the hearing,
Tipton: The U.S. Senate must act now to save funding for Children's Health Insurance Program
Funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program, otherwise known as CHIP, is close to running out. Authorization for spending on this program expired earlier this year, and Colorado's funds will be depleted by the end of January 2018. The House of Representatives passed the Championing Healthy Kids Act last month to extend funding for CHIP, as well as community health centers and other critical public-health programs. These programs are essential to providing access to health care for many families across the 3rd Congressional District, state and nation, and I was proud to work with my colleagues to send a bill to the Senate to ensure they remain funded. The Senate must now act. This week, families throughout Colorado who rely on CHIP for their children's health care, received letters from state officials, urging them to look for other coverage options in the event that the Senate does not pass the funding extension soon. Without Senate action by late December 2017, Colorado wil
Tipton Votes to Improve Healthcare for America's Veterans
WASHINGTON D.C. — Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) voted in support of the Enhancing Veteran Care Act (S. 1266), which would help improve healthcare for America’s veterans. This legislation passed the House with bipartisan support. The Enhancing Veteran Care Act would authorize the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) to enter into contracts with nonprofit organizations, allowing them to investigate VA medical centers and assess the deficiencies of the center’s facilities. “Our veterans have done so much in service of our nation, making it imperative that we serve them once they return home,” said Tipton. “While VA medical centers do so much to assist our nation’s heroes, we unfortunately still hear stories about our veterans not receiving the quality care they deserve. By allowing contractors to identify the exact areas where VA medical centers could improve, they will be better equipped to take appropriate action. I thank Senator Inhofe for his leadership on this issue,
Tipton Introduces Legislation to Honor WWI Veterans with Grave Markers
WASHINGTON D.C. – In commemoration of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the end of World War I (WWI), Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) has introduced a bill (H.R. 4565) directing the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) to furnish headstones or markers to private cemeteries for graves for certain WWI veterans if the cemeteries apply for them. Under current law, private cemeteries cannot directly apply to the VA for a headstone or marker, rather the law only allows a veteran’s next-of-kin to submit the application. The law has created barriers to honoring WWI veterans, as it is often difficult to identify the next of kin for deceased WWI veterans. H.R. 4565 would remedy the challenges created under current law, allowing private cemeteries to directly apply to the VA for a headstone or marker for a World War I veteran if the Secretary of the VA is unable to identify any next of kin of the deceased veteran. Of this legislation, Tipton said, “In my district, a private cemetery has i
