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 ...

Colorado to get $7.8M to fight opioid epidemic
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price recently announced that the agency will provide $485 million in federal grants to states to combat the opioid abuse epidemic. Colorado will receive a grant totaling $7,869,651. The grant is the result of the 21st Century Cures Act, a bipartisan bill signed into law by Barack Obama on Dec. 13, 2016. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colorado, said the announcement was welcome news. "Over the last year, I have visited communities across the 3rd Congressional District that have been deeply impacted by the opioid abuse epidemic that is sweeping our nation. Many of our rural communities simply don't have the resources to fight this epidemic and have called on the federal government for help," said Tipton. "Our health care providers, law enforcement officers, educators and community support groups are committed to saving lives and bringing an end to prescription drug and heroin abuse, and this grant will be extremely helpful for our state," he said. Th
Tipton Votes to Bring Affordable Health Insurance to the Third Congressional District
  Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) voted to advance the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Thursday, a bill to advance the process of repealing and replacing the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA) and bring affordable health insurance to the Third Congressional District of Colorado. “The ACA is broken, and we cannot sit idly by while families in Colorado continue to face exorbitant health care costs. Today I voted to advance the promise I made to my constituents to work to drive down the cost of health insurance and bring competition and choice to the market. As the House developed the American Health Care Act, I was adamant that the replacement plan needed to ensure people with pre-existing conditions would have access to affordable health insurance. The bill provides these assurances. The bill also ensures no one will be dropped from their insurance because of a pre-existing condition, as well as sets aside $123 billion to support states that may choose to establish risk-shari
How the American Health Care Act Protects People with Pre-Existing Conditions
  One of my top priorities is to pass legislation to replace the broken healthcare system created by the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA), with one that makes health care affordable and accessible for Coloradans. Too many people who are insured have premiums that exceed their mortgage payments and deductibles north of $6,500 that have to be met before their insurance even kicks in. This is unacceptable and unsustainable. The House has been working on a bill to repeal and replace the ACA, and throughout the process, I have been adamant that the replacement plan needs to ensure people with pre-existing conditions have access to affordable health insurance. I don’t care who you are – we’re all going to have a pre-existing condition at some point in our lives. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) provides individuals with pre-existing conditions these assurances. I don’t think the law could be clearer about this point. The bill states, word-for-word: “Nothing in this Act s
Tipton Discusses Importance of Legislative Process in Monument Designations, Unintended Consequences of Executive Overreach of the Antiquities Act
During a hearing in the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands on Tuesday, Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) discussed the importance of the legislative process in monument designations and questioned the panel of witnesses about the unintended impacts of executive branch overreach of the Antiquities Act. Tipton asked Mr. Knox Marshall, Vice President of Resources for Murphy Timber Investments LLC, about the challenges the expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument under the Obama Administration has created for long-standing timber agreements on Oregon and California Railroad lands (O&C Lands).  Marshall said, “The O&C Lands are unique and they are designated by Congress under the O&C Act of 1937 to be dedicated to permanent timber production – that’s one question of the president proclaiming them for another use … things like trades, boundary adjustments, etc., would have been a good thing to have in a discussion in front of Congress, so w
