Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Agriculture

Farming and ranching is the cornerstone of rural Colorado's economy, and it has always been an integral part of our way of life. The agriculture and food industry contributes over $40 billion annually to our state's econonmy. As Vice Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus, I am committed to preserving the prosperity of American agriculture by ensuring our farms and ranches are both safe and productive. I support policies that provide job opportunities for rural America, affordable food for our citizens, and economic growth in our communities. I frequently hear the concerns of many family farmers and ranchers who are facing a mountain of new regultions. We all understand that some federal regulation plays a role in keeping our country safe; however, one-size-fits-all, excessive regulation is unnecessarily harmful to rural communities. Providing greater regulatory relief -- especially from legislation or agency rules that are duplicatve and bring no added environmental or food safety protection -- will enable agricultural communities to flourish and help get the nation back on the path to prosperity.
