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 ...

Tipton Reintroduces Bill to Expand Banking Access in Rural Colorado
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) has reintroduced the bipartisan Making Online Banking Initiation Legal and Easy (MOBILE) Act (H.R. 1457) in the 115th Congress to expand access to banking services for families in rural communities throughout Colorado and the United States. “Today, most people are walking around with their own personal bank in their purse or pocket. The MOBILE Act allows our families to use smartphone technology to its fullest potential, while having the assurance that their private information is secure,” said Tipton. The MOBILE Act would clarify existing law and solidify a uniform standard of compliance for banking services. Specifically, the bill ensures financial institutions can “swipe” the machine readable zone on state issued identification cards and record and store the information for the purposes of verifying the identity of a bank customer and preventing fraud or criminal activity. “There are many families in rural communities across the country wh
Tipton Praises Action to Delay Prepaid Account Rule
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement after Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) extended the effective date for the Prepaid Account Final Rule by six months: “I am pleased to see that the CFPB has considered the concerns raised by consumers, industry, and members of Congress about its prepaid account rule and took action to delay the rule for six months. Prepaid card products provide various groups of consumers with new ways to access, spend, and manage their money. The CFPB’s proposed twelve-month effective date was unrealistic given the new disclosure and packaging requirements and operational changes necessary to comply with the rule. Delaying the rule will help ensure a balance between protecting consumers and supporting the continued growth of prepaid financial products.” On Sept. 29, 2016, Tipton joined several of his colleagues in sending a bicameral letter to the CFPB requesting that the Bureau consider several changes to th
COLUMN: Health Care, Regulations, and Public Lands Among Top Concerns in Third Congressional District
I recently had the opportunity to visit with over 5,220 constituents during a telephone town hall meeting. With one of the largest congressional districts in the country – 29 counties spanning nearly half the state of Colorado – I make a point to visit as many communities as I can throughout the year to hear from groups and hold public meetings. I typically hold my public meetings in the spring and summer months, which I will continue to do in the 115th Congress. In the winter and throughout the year, I use telephone town hall meetings as one platform for keeping in touch with constituents and sharing updates on my work. I heard from constituents on a variety of topics during my hour-long telephone town hall, but the most frequently asked questions were about health care, regulations, and public lands. Many families in Colorado are facing an average deductible of more than $6,000 under Obamacare, and in some cases their premiums have exceed their mortgage payments each month. I co
Tipton Votes for Military Pay Increase
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1301, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2017 by a vote of  371-48: “At the end of last year, we voted in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2017 to increase pay for our troops, continue our support for Israel, and to keep dangerous terrorists in Guantanamo Bay. I was glad to see a clean defense appropriations bill that focuses solely on the defense priorities that the House outlined. One of our primary jobs in Congress is to provide for the common defense of the nation, and in order to do this, our military must have the resources to obtain proper equipment, receive essential training, and have the means to maintain overall readiness.” The FY17 defense appropriations bill provides $583.7 billion in total discretionary spending for the Department of Defense, including a 2.1% pay increase for active duty forces. Congress approved $132.1 billio
