Tipton Rebukes BLM for Denying Coloradans Sufficient Opportunity to Comment on White River National Forest Leases
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) called out the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for refusing a commonly approved request to briefly extend the public comment period for an ongoing environmental review process on existing oil and gas leases on the White River National Forest. In December Tipton and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) both requested an extension citing that the timing of the comment period overlapped with another comment period in the region and took place over the holidays, making it difficult for those wishing to submit comments to get them in on time. The BLM refused to extend the comment period, even though the granting of an extension is normally a formality when a request is made. Watch Tipton’s remarks HERE   Tipton’s remarks as prepared for delivery follow: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I rise today to address an ongoing environmental review process within my district that I firmly believe represents yet another in a long line of abuses of private property rig











House Sends Obamacare Repeal to President’s Desk
WASHINGTON—Today, underscoring that the Affordable Care Act has put healthcare out of reach for many Americans, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) voted to pass legislation to repeal the law’s most onerous provisions, effectively dismantling it. The Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, which used a fast-track reconciliation process to force a vote in the Senate, now goes to the President’s desk. The bill also defunds Planned Parenthood for a year and directs the funding to qualified community health centers that provide healthcare for women and children. “For the first time the President will be forced to face up to the failures of his healthcare law. By using reconciliation, a tool available for use only once per year, the House was able to end-run the Senate filibuster and get this critical bill to the President’s desk. If he vetoes this repeal effort, the President will be admitting that he is unwilling to fix the failures of the law and work toward a











Tipton statement on Obama’s Overreaching Gun Control Action
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement in response to the President’s overreaching executive orders on guns. In December, the Washington Post’s fact checker confirmed that none of the gun control legislation proposed up to that point—the basis for much of the President’s executive orders—would have prevented recent mass shootings (the Post looked back to shootings that occurred since 2012). “The President’s overreaching proposals to restrict the Second Amendment for law-abiding citizens have already been debated and rejected by the Senate. Yet the President is playing politics rather than working with Congress to advance solutions. These executive orders, like many of the President’s previous such actions, will be challenged and likely defeated in the courts. “This is President Obama’s legacy. It is marked by a complete unwillingness to work with the people’s representatives within the scope of the Constitution to identify and advance s











Tipton Statement on USFS Ski Area Water Rights Directive
WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement in response to the U.S. Forest Service’s publication of the final directive for the Ski Area Water Clause in the federal record. “The Forest Service’s conditional use of permit for ski areas has been one of the Administration’s most onerous attempts to hijack private water rights. While the latest version of the directive is improved from the original that sought to outright force the transfer of private water rights to the federal government, there still is room for improvement. The latest rendition of this ill-fated directive places unnecessary restrictions on private water rights holders, in an attempt to solve a problem that doesn’t exist. By the Forest Service Chief’s own admission, there has not been an instance of ski area water rights being sold off for other uses. Furthermore, there is still ongoing concern that while the Forest Service may not require the outright transfer of private water r
