Boehner Campaigns for Tipon Today: Pace Calls on Tipton to Use Opportunity to Save Colorado Jobs

Press Release

Location: Pueblo, CO

As Vestas announces layoffs at their Pueblo, Colorado plant, Congressman Tipton continues August recess with an Aspen fundraiser today with Speaker John Boehner.

Yesterday, Vestas announced it had laid off an undisclosed amount of Colorado workers. In a statement, Vestas said these layoffs were because of the Congress' failure to extend the production tax credit.

"Uncertainty over whether Congress will extend the Production Tax Credit is leading to a general market slowdown," Vestas spokesman Andrew Longeteig said in the statement.

Congress recessed for the month of August without extending the decades-old production tax credit. Rep. Sal Pace (D-Pueblo) said this inaction is inexcusable and costing real people jobs.

"Congressman Tipton should use his audience with Speaker Boehner today to help save Colorado jobs,'" Pace said. "Because of Congress' inaction on the production tax credit, Coloradans are unnecessarily being laid off. I challenge Congressman Tipton to ask Speaker Boehner today to reconvene Congress immediately to take a vote to extend the production tax credit."
