FRUITA, Colo. - US Representative Scott Tipton fielded questions from Fruita residents at a town hall meeting on Monday.
A few dozen people attended at the Fruita Community Center. The congressman began the meeting by showcasing some of the work he's done in the past legislative session, but the majority of the time was spent answering questions. Topics ranged from American policy in the Middle East, stringent EPA regulations Tipton opposes and immigration reform.
“Let’s get border security. Let’s get a viable guest worker program in place. We've presented several ideas that have grown right out of Colorado… [and] use that as a framework to be able to move forward on some very complex issues we do know exist,” Representative Tipton said on immigration reform.
The congressman will continue his tour of Mesa County on Tuesday at a small business summit held at Colorado Mesa University at 10:30 a.m. To RSVP, call (703) 487-3664.
