Washington Recap

Action was light in Washington, DC for the week of January 17th.  The only major action taken in either chamber was in the House of Representatives, who voted for repeal of Obamacare by a vote of 245-189.  As was expected the Colorado House delegation was split with Congressmen Lamborn, Coffman, Gardner and Tipton voting in support of repeal and Congressmen Polis, Perlmutter and DeGette voting to oppose repeal.

Formal committee action has not begun in either chamber of the Congress do to slowness in each chamber of getting committee assignments to members.  Congressional representatives Gardner and Tipton have received their committee assignments however.  Congressman Gardner has been appointed to the prestigious and powerful Energy and Commerce committee.  Congressman Tipton has been appointed to the House Committee on Agriculture and the House Committee on Natural Resources, where he will serve with fellow Colorado representatives Lamborn and Coffman.
