Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Energy and Environment

Spanning the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District is blessed with abundant natural resources, open spaces, and scenic beauty. Our energy portfolio includes traditional energy resources like natural gas, oil, and clean coal, as well as renewable sources like wind, solar, and hydropower. Development of our energy resources must be done carefully and responsibly, so that we can preserve our state’s environment and pristine beauty. To that end, I am committed to keeping Colorado beautiful for this and future generations through responsible conservation and forest management, and by 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.
