Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Public Lands

Since arriving in Congress, I have been committed to preserving Colorado's pristine areas and cultural treasures. I am committed to keeping Colorado beautiful for this and future generations, through responsible conservation and forest management. I am also committed to ensuring that our open spaces and public lands remain accessible, so that people from all around the world continue to visit and experience our world-class skiing, hiking, angling, hunting, and many other types of outdoor recreation. I support a balanced appraoch to federal land management and believe that the push for any land designation must come from the local level. I support efforts that revolve around respecting the environment we all deepy value, while making the best use of our resources.
