Tipton Pushes to Fully Fund PILT
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) joined with a bipartisan group of his House colleagues to urge House leadership to prioritize funding for the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016, and to work toward a long-term, sustainable solution for the vital program on which rural counties rely to provide essential services. Tipton also sent a letter to House appropriators this week requesting full funding for PILT in FY 2016 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations. PILT reimburses local governments for losses in tax revenues due to the presence of large expanses of un-taxable federal lands, ensuring vital funding for infrastructure, law enforcement, education and other essential operations. Colorado received nearly $34 million in PILT payments in 2014. See a county breakdown of PILT payments HERE. The text of the letter from Tipton and his colleagues to Speaker of the House John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi follows: Dear Spe











Tipton: Medicare SGR Reform is First Step to Providing Certainty for Seniors
Bill includes two-year SRS extension WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement following passage in the U.S. House of Representatives of H.R. 2: “By repealing the Sustainable Growth Rate, Congress took the first steps to reform and strengthen Medicare, and give seniors needed certainty that they won’t lose their healthcare providers due to looming severe cuts to Medicare reimbursement rates year to year. The bill does not create any new federal spending or raise taxes, and according to CBO estimates could result in a cost savings of nearly $1 billion over the next ten years. This is a first step, but there is still much work that needs to be done to put Medicare on a sustainable course so that it remains viable for future generations of seniors, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to that end. “Additionally, today’s legislation included a two-year funding extension for Secure Rural Schools, making good on assurances from leadership that th

Tipton Statement on Passage of the House Budget for FY 2016
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement following passage of a budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 by the U.S. House of Representatives: “Today we passed a budget that empowers Main Street instead of the Beltway. It requires Washington to live within its means, as countless American families and businesses do each and every day. It respects the American worker and strengthens the middle class by embracing bottom-up growth policies to invest in American ingenuity, independence and hard work, instead of bureaucracy. “The House budget is a stark contrast to the President’s, which called for more of the same tax increases and debt-fueled Washington growth that has resulted in the lowest labor participation rate in decades, and created an economic climate in which more businesses are closing than starting up for the first time in American history. “The President’s status quo approach hasn’t worked and it’s time for new ideas. The House budget doesn’t
