Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton (R-District 3) represents one of the largest geographical districts in the country. He sits on the Subcommittee on Mineral and Energy Resources and the Subcommittee on Federal Lands.
Environment reporter Elizabeth Stewart-Severy recently spoke with Tipton about proposed legislation and his philosophy on public lands.
Tipton’s district includes both areas that are heavily dependent on energy development and ski towns that rely on consistent snowfall. Stewart-Severy also asked Tipton about his approach to climate-related issues.
