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 ...

Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) released the schedule for the first of a series of community roundtable meetings his office is holding focused on federal, state and local efforts to combat the opioid abuse epidemic. Tipton, a Member of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic, has worked to advance legislation to curb opioid abuse through prevention, education, treatment and law enforcement efforts. He is forming community working groups to gather feedback on the impact of existing programs, increase communication, and inform further legislative efforts in Congress. Invited participants include healthcare providers, non-profit organizations, representatives from the justice system, individuals with firsthand personal experience with drug abuse, and local officials.  “The opioid abuse epidemic is having a heartbreaking impact on communities across the United States, including here in Colorado’s 3rd District.

Tipton Responds to Administration’s Review of Federal Coal Program, Report on Coal Leasing
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) submitted remarks to the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) during a listening session on the Administration’s review of the federal coal program. The DOI has launched a comprehensive review of the federal coal program to identify and consider potential reforms. As part of the review, the DOI has set public meetings in communities around the country to solicit public feedback on the program. Tipton’s remarks were submitted at a meeting in Grand Junction, CO. In his remarks, Tipton addressed the issues of public returns on resource development, environmental impacts, and the impacts decisions by the Administration may have on coal-dependent communities. Tipton said, “Coal mining is honest work that pays well and produces over half of Colorado’s electric generation. Yes, we should utilize all forms of energy at our disposal. Yes, we should ensure that the public receives a fair return on publically owned resources. Yes, these resources should all b
Tipton Introduces Bill to Protect Colorado Families’ Access to Emergency Lending
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) introduced a bill that would protect Colorado families from a harmful rule that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) proposed on June 2, 2016. The proposed rule places new federal restrictions on financial institutions that are considered payday, auto title, or other small-dollar lenders. The new regulations would preempt existing payday lending regulations that are already in place in 36 states. Tipton’s bill, the Accounting for Consumer Credit and Encouraging State Solutions (ACCESS) Act, would allow a state or federally recognized Indian tribe to request a waiver for exemption from the CFPB’s final regulation. “With this proposed rule, the Bureau has completely disregarded the efforts that a majority of states, including Colorado, have already made to protect families from predatory lending while preserving their access to short-term credit,” said Tipton. “We know that many American households don’t have extra money that they c
Tipton Votes to Override Presidential Veto, Ensure Colorado Families Have Access to Retirement Advice
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) voted to override President Obama’s veto of a measure that would block a Department of Labor (DOL) regulation that restricts access to financial planning advice and education for millions of low to moderate income Americans. The final regulation, known as the fiduciary rule, was issued on April 6, 2016. On April 28, 2016, Tipton voted in favor of H.J.Res. 88, a resolution of disapproval that would nullify the DOL’s fiduciary rule. The president vetoed H.J.Res. 88 on June 8, 2016. The measure to override the president’s veto of H.J.Res. 88 did not receive the two-thirds vote required for passage in the House. “The DOL’s fiduciary rule is another one-size-fits-all regulation from Washington bureaucrats who have no idea what is best for families in Colorado, and I’m disappointed that we weren’t able to override the president’s veto,” said Tipton. “Millions of Americans work with retirement advisors to determine how to best invest their
