Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) voted in favor of the Separation of Powers Restoration Act of 2016 (H.R. 4768) to stop excessive regulation and restore the separation of powers between the three branches of the federal government.
"I cosponsored the Separation of Powers Restoration Act and supported its passage on the House floor, because I want to restore our federal government to one that works for the people -- not the other way around," said Tipton.
Mental health, the Affordable Care Act, and Medicare/Medicaid reimbursements/mandates were the leading topics when hospital employees met with Congressman Scott Tipton last week. Rep. Tipton toured the hospital with CEO Jason Cleckler, chief clinical officer Jody Roeber, hospital board member Bill Hellman and other members of the leadership team before meeting with department heads. Tipton was joined by his wife Jean, which he said is "a real rarity." He was also accompanied by two staff members, George Rossman, constituent services field representative, and Brian Meinhart, regional director/policy advisor, both from his Grand Junction office.
Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) is calling the Department of the Interior's (DOI) moratorium on federal coal leasing an "irresponsible, politically motivated decision that jeopardizes America's energy future."
On Friday, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced a comprehensive review that will take "a careful look at issues such as how, when and where to lease; how to account for the environmental and public health impacts of federal coal production; and how to ensure American taxpayers are earning a fair return for the use of their public resources."
Congressman Scott Tipton opened his Delta town hall on Aug. 4 by recognizing all present who had served in the country's military, as well as the Cedaredge musicians who have been nominated to participate in the Washington, D.C., Memorial Day events next year.
He then spoke of pending legislation in the House of Representatives.
