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 ...

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 ...

(In August, Tipton (center) toured Rocla Concrete Tie, Inc. in Pueblo, which manufactures concrete railroad ties for multiple transport uses.) PUEBLO, CO—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) has received the Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).

Tipton Takes Fish and Wildlife to Task over Greater Sage Grouse
WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) and a number of his Western colleagues blasted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for shirking sound science and transparency as the agency rushes to meet a self-imposed, superficial listing deadline that could jeopardize the wellbeing of the Greater Sage Grouse. In a letter to Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, Tipton and his colleagues wrote: “We write to express concerns with the lack of transparency of your Department’s evaluation and use of ‘best available scientific and commercial data’ and lack of coordination with and assurances to affected states and other stakeholders relating to their extensive ongoing conservation efforts to avoid a listing under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of the Greater Sage Grouse.  “With less than a year to go before the Department’s self-imposed September 2015 settlement deadline to determine whether to list the Greater Sage Grouse under the ESA, it appears that the Department is blata
Tipton Working to Ensure PILT and SRS Included in 2015 Budget
WASHINGTON— Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) joined with a number of his bipartisan House colleagues today in urging House leaders to provide certainty for counties by including funding for Payment-in-Lieu-of-Taxes (PILT) and Secure Rural Schools (SRS) in the upcoming FY 2015 budget. The members underscored the importance of PILT and SRS funding for many rural county budgets that are already strained to deliver vital services to residents. The House is expected to vote on a measure to fund the government for FY 2015 before the end of the year. The text of the letter from Tipton and his colleagues to Speaker of the House John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi follows: Dear Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader Pelosi, As the 113th Congress comes to an end, we urge you to work in a bi-partisan, bi-cameral fashion to secure funding for the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (SRS) programs for fiscal year 2015.  Without full
Weekly Update from Congressman Scott Tipton
*To see other recent newsletters and to subscribe to receive updates from Congressman Tipton click HERE. Dear Friend, I want to give you a quick update from the road this week on some of the things we’ve been working on as we travel through the 3rd District. The spread of Ebola in West Africa, and now the cases here in the U.S. are cause for serious concern. Just this week the House Energy and Commerce Committee held an oversight hearing on the government’s response to the outbreak so far, and on what needs to be done to contain it in West Africa and prevent it from spreading in the U.S. Based on the testimony in that hearing and on additional information I have seen, I believe that there are commonsense steps that can and should be taken now to contain the spread, including visa/travel restrictions on West Africa and more stringent screening and quarantines. I will continue to closely monitor this situation, and work with my colleagues to ensure that resources are available and
