Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Financial Services

The most pressing issue facing financial institutions in the Third Congressional District is the compliance burden from Dodd-Frank regulations. The Dodd-Frank regulations were meant to lift the economy out of recession and end the “too big to fail” phenomenon that came out of the 2008 financial crisis. Instead, the one-size-fits-all regulations have hurt community banks, stunted the growth of small businesses, and limited credit options for lower-income Americans. As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, I am working to provide our small banks and credit unions relief from heavy-handed Dodd-Frank regulations that should never have been applied to them in the first place.
