Yesterday, the Colorado Farm Bureau (CFB) recognized Congressman Scott Tipton’s (R-CO) work in Congress on behalf of agriculture issues that impact farmers and ranchers across the 3rd Congressional District with the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Friend of Farm Bureau Award. Tipton serves on the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committees and as chairman of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade. Bureau President Don Shawcroft says Tipton has worked tirelessly to protect private property rights of Colorado’s farmers and ranchers from government overreach through his positions on the House Agriculture Committee and House Natural Resources Committee. He says Tipton has fought for tax reform to allow farms and ranches to be passed from one generation to the next, and worked to halt needless regulations in Washington, DC from negatively impacting at home. Upon receiving the reward, Tipton said agriculture issues have been a priority for him in Congress, and he will continue to work to advance policies to ensure that American agriculture producers are able thrive and grow.
