Election Guide 2014: Former state senator challenges 2-term incumbent for 3rd Congressional District
Abel Tapia is running against Scott Tipton for Colorado's 3rd U.S. Congressional District seat.
The Environmental Protection Agency proposed a plan that would mandate coal-fired power plants cut their carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030. Then the agency set up a 120-day comment period and hearings across the country — one in Denver will be on the week of July 28. But, many want to change the locations to be in areas where coal energy is produced.
Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., partnered with four other western congressmen to introduce a piece of legislation, the Sage Grouse Protection and Conservation Act, on May 22 that would prevent sage grouse from being listed as threatened or endangered for ten years. This is the second time this session Congress members proposed this type of legislation as an effort to press agencies to rethink their approach to listing sage grouse species.
U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, will host a fundraiser Aug. 30 in Steamboat Springs with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.
State Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, will be in Steamboat on Tuesday to meet with seniors, the Routt County Board of Commissioners and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
Congressman Scott Tipton will be in Steamboat Springs on Tuesday to thank voters for their support during the November general election.
Tipton ran away in what was expected to be a much closer contest for one of the country's largest congressional districts.
Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District seat has been one of the most fiercely contested in the state — if not the nation — the past few years, and for good reason.
