Tipton Announces Grant for Colorado Veterans Drug Court Program
The Colorado Judicial Department will receive $399,380 to support the state’s veterans drug court program, Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) announced on Tuesday. The grant is authorized under the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Veterans Treatment Courts program, which received $7 million in total funding for fiscal year 2017.  The grant can be used to implement, enhance, or expand local and state-wide drug courts. “Over the past year-and-a-half, I have traveled across the 3rd Congressional District and heard the stories of families and individuals who have been impacted by the opioid epidemic that is sweeping our nation. All of these stories are heartbreaking, but especially heartbreaking are the stories about veterans who return home and feel they have no other option but to seek comfort in drugs or alcohol,” said Tipton. “Drug courts are an important path to recovery for many of these men and women, and I’m glad that Colorado has been awarded this funding to support











Tipton Presses Former Equifax CEO on Data Breach
During a hearing in the House Committee on Financial Services, Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03), pressed former Equifax Chief Executive Officer, Richard Smith, about the company’s protocol for notifying customers that their data has been breached and how to prevent harm to consumers in the future. In response to Tipton’s question about Equifax’s protocols, Smith said, “Yes, there were protocols in place. The protocols started [when] the security individual saw suspicious activity. Protocol number one, she shut down the particular portal, started the internal investigation, followed by the traditional protocol that they followed, which is to notify and engage [an] outside forensic auditor … engage outside counsel to help us with the investigation, and then protocol was followed throughout, notifying the regulators, [Attorneys General], and the consumers.” Tipton’s complete line of questioning can be viewed here. Audio of the exchange can be accessed here. 











Tipton Issues Statement on Tax Reform Framework
  Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement after the House Republican Conference unveiled the United Framework for Fixing Our Broken Tax Code: “The current tax code does not work for Americans. It is too complicated for individuals and families, punishes small businesses for investing to expand or create jobs, and puts U.S. companies at a disadvantage on the global stage. The framework announced today includes the principles I believe are necessary to allow individuals and families to keep more of the money they earn. The framework consolidates our tax brackets from seven to three and doubles the standard deduction for individuals and families, so while the tax brackets have shifted, the first $24,000 that a family earns, or the first $12,000 that an individual earns, will be free from the federal income tax.  “The framework also supports small businesses by capping the tax rate for family-owned businesses and sole-proprietorships at 25 percent. It











Tipton Advocates for Ski Areas During Natural Resources Hearing
Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) advocated for ski areas and recreation on public lands during a recent hearing in the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands. The focus of the hearing was the Recreation Not Red Tape Act (H.R. 3400), a bill that would streamline regulations to facilitate more public access to outdoor recreation opportunities on public lands across the United States. The bill also includes a provision that would establish a Ski Area Fee Retention Account within the U.S. Treasury, which would disperse a portion of ski area permit fees back to the ski areas on which they were generated in order to enhance recreational opportunities. During the hearing, Tipton asked Brian Merrill, President of Western River Expeditions, if he believed that allowing ski areas to retain a portion of the fees generated on the land so they can be reinvested in recreation infrastructure would increase public investment in the ski areas. Merrill responded, “If I’m going to pay a f
