Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Economy and Jobs

During this time of economic uncertainty, we must take a hard look at our budget priorities and rein in the federal overreach that is impeding private-sector job creation. By cutting out-of-control federal spending and reforming job-killing regulations, we can get government out of the way of the private sector and give businesses room to create jobs, drive economic recovery, and move toward economic security for our families. Thousands of good-paying jobs are tied to energy production in Colorado. I remain committed to advancing an all-of-the-above energy development plan that grows our economy and keeps energy costs affordable for our families.
