Tipton Votes to Stop Abuse, Cut Waste at the IRS
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) voted to protect Americans from suffering further abuse by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Tipton and his House colleagues passed the Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act (H.R. 5016), today. The bill includes protections for taxpayers against IRS targeting and abuse of power, cuts wasteful spending, and increases accountability and transparency at the agency. “The abuse of power and deception that has occurred at the IRS is the reason Americans are rightfully skeptical of their government. It was deplorable that the IRS targeted specific groups solely because they had different ideologies than the current Administration, and it is appalling that the IRS claims to have lost emails from Lois Lerner and others central to the scandal. While the investigation continues so that those involved will face consequences for their actions, it is important to take steps to prevent this from happening again,











Tipton’s Language to Prohibit Sage Grouse ESA Listing Included in Interior Bill
Funds cannot be used to list Gunnison or Greater Sage Grouse under the bill WASHINGTON—Today, the House Appropriations Committee included Congressman Scott Tipton’s (R-CO) language to prohibit the use of any funds under the FY 2015 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Act to be used to list the Gunnison or Greater Sage Grouse as threatened or endangered species. The bill was advanced during a Committee markup today. In April, Tipton wrote House Appropriators: “I am also writing to request that the following language be added to the FY 2015 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations bill stating: ‘None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to add the Gunnison-Sage Grouse to the list of threatened species or endangered species published under section 4(c) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1553 (c)).’ The adoption of this language is designed to postpone the [Department of Interior’s ] impulsive march towards lis











Tipton Effort to Protect Water Rights Advances in Interior Appropriations Bil
WASHINGTON—Today, the House Appropriations Committee included Congressman Scott Tipton’s (R-CO) language to protect privately-held water rights as part of the FY 2015 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Act. Tipton’s language, which was included in the bill advanced during a Committee markup today, prohibits funds from being used by the federal government to take privately-held water without compensation. In March, Tipton and a number of his western colleagues wrote House Appropriators to request that the language be included: Over the past decade, there have been numerous cases when the federal government has attempted to circumvent long-established state water law in order to take privately-held water rights without paying for them. By using the federal permit, lease, and land management process to extort water rights from those who hold rights under state law, the federal government is overreaching, violating private property rights, and the United States











Tipton Cautions that EPA Wage Garnishing Rule Isn’t Over
WASHINGTON— Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) warned that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) announcement this week that it was abandoning the direct implementation of a proposed rule to garnish Americans’ paychecks to collect fines shouldn’t be construed as the agency backing away from the rule. The EPA quietly published the rule in the federal register earlier this month, and was attempting to sneak it through without sufficient input or oversight with the intent of directly implementing it on September 2, 2014. In a change of course this week, the EPA announced that because of comments received, it would change the process to a public comment period extended through September 2, before making any final decisions on the rule. “While it’s good that Americans will now have an opportunity to make comments on this overreaching rule, it’s important to note that the EPA is not backing down. Should the rule be implemented, the EPA would be ignoring the due process right
