Biography

Becker earned his B.S. in Business Administration from Colorado State University and his M.B.A. from Colorado Christian University. His professional experience includes working as Executive Director for the Morgan County Economic Development Corporation, Adjuster for Farmers Insurance Group, Director of Economic Development for Viaero Wireless and Adjunct Professor at Morgan Community College.

Committee assignments

2011-2012

In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Becker served on these committees:

Issues

Energy

Becker sponsored House Bill 1312, which aims to promote traditional fuels as well as renewable ones. Lawmakers on the House Agriculture, Livestock, & Natural Resources Committee voted in favor it in early May 2011.

Becker says the restructuring is needed to be more inclusive of current energy technologies.

‘The point … is to bring everyone to the table—all of our energy sources to the table,” said Becker.

In addition to changing the name of the Governors Energy Office—known as GEO-—to the Colorado Energy Office, the bill also would refocus the mission of the office to promote conventional energy technologies, not just renewable energy technologies, and would reduce the number of state employees under the energy office. Cost efficiencies and market support would be a part of the mission of the office.[1]
