Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Appropriations Submissions

Please find Congressman Tipton's fiscal year 2018(FY18) appropriations request form below.

Please note that the below form must be completed by Friday, March 25, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. (subject to change).

In order to simplify the process, please complete the below form ONLY IF this is the first time you would like to register support for a specific federal program, or if this is a new or updated report language/ bill language/ program request.   

For these new requests, we do not need a cover letter, faxed forms, or other additional information – just the form.  

As with previous years, earmarks have been banned, so only programmatic, bill, and report language requests are acceptable.  

Here are some preliminary tips:

  1. The House Rules define an earmark as --

a provision or report language included primarily at the request of a Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, or Senator providing, authorizing or recommending a specific amount of discretionary budget authority, credit authority, or other spending authority for a contract, loan, loan guarantee, grant, loan authority, or other expenditure with or to an entity, or targeted to a specific State, locality or Congressional district, other than through a statutory or administrative formula-driven or competitive award process.

These requests will not be accepted.

  1. What is a program or language request?

Program Request: a request to fund a specific Federal program at a specified level—Example: Provide $5,000,000,000 for the National Cancer Institute.

Language Request: a request to include specific bill or report language that does not direct funding to a particular entity but encourages, urges, or directs some type of action by an agency. Example: Committee encourages the Department of Education to study the impact of the availability of student loans on increases in enrollment rates.

The President's FY17 budget was released.  Please use it as a reference in preparing your submission; it will help you easily find information regarding your federal programs of interest.
