Tipton Announces Date for Roundtable on Opioid Abuse Epidemic in Cortez
Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) announced a community roundtable meeting his office is holding in Cortez, CO, to discuss 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.

COLUMN: Coloradans Show Resilience, Commitment in Year Following Gold King Mine Spill
It has been a year since three million gallons of contaminated water were released into Cement Creek and the Animas River after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) breached the Gold King Mine adit. I shared Coloradans’ concerns about the EPA’s lack of urgency immediately following the spill and confusion over why the agency was performing the remediation without adequate engineering expertise on site when the accident occurred. In the days following the spill, Colorado U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner and I pressed the EPA to quickly undertake the emergency response, water quality testing, and clean-up that was necessary to keep families in the surrounding communities safe from the contaminated water and sediment. We also urged the agency to take full responsibility for the accident and appropriately compensate the affected communities.  A year after the spill, I am still alarmed by the lack of accountability we have seen from the EPA. I recognize that the age











In wake of Gold King spill, lawmakers push for cleaning up mines
In the year since the Gold King Mine blowout, congressional leaders have pushed several bills addressing the spill and other issues associated with leaking abandoned mines.











Tipton Responds to Administration’s $400 Million Ransom Payment to Iran
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of State conceded that a $400 million payment to Iran in Jan. 2016, was contingent on the release of American prisoners: “The Administration continues to spin its $400 million payment to Iran as a savvy diplomatic maneuver, but now there is no question that the payment was contingent on the release of three Americans. This is the definition of a ransom payment. Securing the release of American prisoners overseas is a top priority, but the U.S. does not negotiate with terrorists or make ransom payments for hostages. The fact that the $400 million payment was in any way related to the release of American detainees is unacceptable. It has further emboldened Iran and put more Americans at risk.”
