Tipton Recognized As Small Business Champion During Grand Junction Summit

2014/08/19

GRAND JUNCTION, CO—Today, experts on small business, economic development and entrepreneurship spoke in Grand Junction during a Small Business Resource Summit presented by SCORE and Colorado Mesa University. Attendees learned about programs, organizations and resources available in the community to both existing small businesses and startups to help them succeed, grow and create jobs.

“The importance of small business to the health of our nation’s economy cannot be overstated. The 27,200,000 small businesses in the United States create an average of 7 out of every 10 new jobs, and provide countless families with the opportunity to achieve the American dream. I will continue to fight for small business and for the future prosperity of our children and our nation,” said Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO). “Today we heard from a wealth of experts on economic growth, small business development and entrepreneurship. The panelists presented on a tremendous host of resources and opportunities available right here in this community as we work together to create prosperity and get people back to work.”

The Summit featured presentations from representatives of the Grand Junction Business Incubator Center, Mesa County Workforce Center, Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce, Grand Junction Economic Partnership, Colorado Mesa University, SCORE, and the Small Business Administration.

During the Summit, Tipton was presented with the Hill Champion Award by SCORE for his steadfast work in Congress to support small businesses and economic development. 

“We are honored to present this award to Congressman Scott Tipton as he has been a constant and tireless advocate in support of SCORE and America’s small businesses,” said SCORE CEO Ken Yancey. “He has used his own experience as a small businessman to guide his work on the House Small Business Committee and as a Subcommittee Chairman to help small businesses thrive as an economic engine of our country.”  

Tipton is the Chairman of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade. He is the co-founder of the Congressional Small Business Caucus, which has grown to include over 90 bipartisan members dedicated to advancing efforts to foster the economic certainty needed for small businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed and create jobs.

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by SCORE as a champion of small business. While there are many other deserving candidates, it is with great pride that I accept this award. As a small business owner, I know firsthand the challenges facing entrepreneurs as they strive to make their businesses successful and create jobs,” said Tipton. “My experiences in small business have helped guide my work in Congress to fight for policies that would strengthen America’s economy and create new opportunities for small businesses to do what they do best—create jobs.”

Congressman Scott Tipton was raised in Cortez, Colorado. He graduated from Ft. Lewis College in Durango, where he studied Political Science and became the first person in his family to earn a college degree. After college, he returned home to Cortez and co-founded Mesa Verde Indian Pottery with his brother Joe. It was through his business that Scott met his wife, Jean, who is a former school teacher. The Tipton’s have two daughters, Liesl and Elizabeth, and two  sons-in-law, Chris and Jace.

After a lifetime running his small business, Scott was elected as a Republican to the Colorado House of Representatives for the 58th District in November of 2008. During his time at the state House, he worked to ensure quality water for the people of Colorado and to improve the air quality of Southwest Colorado. He also sponsored legislation to protect children from the worst criminal offenders by mandating harsher penalties for child sex-offenders and allowing law enforcement to collect DNA evidence from suspects through Jessica’s Law and Katie’s Law.

Scott was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 and again in 2012 for a second term.

In the 112th Congress, Scott pushed hard to advance a federal version of Katie’s Law to encourage additional states to implement minimum DNA collection standards and enhanced collection processes for felons in order to strengthen law enforcement’s ability to prevent violent crimes, and protect women and children.  That effort became a reality when the President signed Katie’s Law on January 3, 2013.

Using his positions on the House Natural Resources, Agriculture and Small Business Committees, Scott has is fighting for the issues that most directly impact Coloradans, many of which involve our state’s extensive open spaces and natural resources.  In his first term, Scott introduced legislation to encourage healthy forest management and prevent wildfire, as well as passed a bill in the House with bipartisan support to advance the development of clean, renewable hydropower.  He is also leading the charge in Congress to stop a federal grab of privately-held water rights, standing up for farmers and ranchers, the ski industry, and all who rely on their water rights to survive.

Scott is champion of advancing an all-of-the-above energy solution that balances common sense conservation with responsible development. He passed the Planning for American Energy Act through the House (as a title under the American Domestic Energy and Jobs Act) to put requirements into place to develop wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal, oil, natural gas, coal, oil shale and minerals, based on the needs of the American people.

Scott has used his experience as a small businessman to inform his work as a Subcommittee Chairman on the Small Business Committee. Here he has worked to protect farmers and ranchers from regulatory overreach, as well as push for expanded trade opportunities for Colorado products. Scott is a co-founder of the Congressional Small Business Caucus, a bipartisan caucus committed to open dialogue on the issues that most impact small businesses.  Members of the Congressional Small Business Caucus are dedicated to advancing efforts to foster the economic certainty needed for small businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed and create jobs.

In the 113th Congress, Scott continues to represent the many interests of one of the most diverse and geographically vast districts in the nation. He will fight to bring Colorado common sense to Washington—focusing on reforming regulation, protecting Colorado’s natural environment, encouraging responsible all-of-the-above energy development, reducing government spending, and removing hurdles so that small businesses can do what they do best—create jobs.
