According to the Center for Responsive Politics, from 2005-2018, three of Rep. Scott Tipton’s largest donors are SG Interests (donated $52,539), Anschutz Corporation (donated $45,800) and Koch Industries (donated $42,250).
These three corporations are involved, one way or another, in the oil and gas business. Check out their websites; descriptions of their focus are right there. I did.
Some of his top industry donors are oil and gas (donated $496,713) and real estate (donated $507,066).
OnTheIssues.org gives us Tipton’s voting record. He voted yes on opening the Outer Continental Shelf to oil drilling. He voted yes on barring the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases. Tipton sponsored a bill to let states lease energy rights on federal lands. These are just a few of his votes that are not pro-environment, and Tipton denies that the actions of humans are affecting our climate in a negative way.
Vote for Diane Mitsch Bush. She will work for all of us. One of her many positive statements is, “Congress must act immediately to reduce carbon and methane emissions, expand development of renewable energy and prepare for impacts of climate change.”
Please, vote for Diane Mitsch Bush in November. Our quality of life and health of our planet depend on it.
