Tipton Statement on the Passage of the Continuing Resolution

Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) today voted to extend government funding through January 19, 2018. Tipton released the following statement after the Continuing Resolution passed in the House:

“I voted to pass the Continuing Resolution today because failure to pass this measure would have resulted in a government shutdown. Shutting down the government does not benefit anyone. Additionally, over the past few months I have received calls from folks all over Colorado urging those of us in Congress to reauthorize funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). While my colleagues and I in the House voted to keep CHIP funded until fiscal year 2022, the Senate has somehow still failed to act. The passage of the Continuing Resolution today will ensure that CHIP and funding for community health centers continues into fiscal year 2018, providing much needed support for families and health care providers across the country.”
