U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton paid a visit to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe on Tuesday, May 26 to discuss with Tribal Council and the Sunshine Cloud Smith Youth Advisory Council about the regulations of water rights within the reservation. Tipton is hopeful in providing a bill that protects the water uses for tribal members, in addition to enhancing higher education for the youth. “We’re optimistic about building the momentum of a Fort Lewis College bill. It will create great opportunities to provide for our children to pursue higher education.” Tipton was given a decorative pin by Chairman Clement J. Frost as a token of appreciation. “We appreciate the [congressman] for taking the time to come out and instill leadership in our youth and community,” Frost said.
