Tyler did not provide answers to the Colorado State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test provides voters with how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected.
Tyler credits both the sun, and Democratic-sponsored legislation, for the estimated 5,300 new jobs predicted for Colorado in 2011.
“With 300 days of sunshine and an innovative workforce, it just made sense to sponsor strong renewable energy legislation. It’s exciting to see the fruits of that labor right in my district with people getting hired on to work in this blossoming industry,” said Tyler.
Tyler sponsored House Bill 1001 which mandates a 30 percent renewable-energy standard for public utilities to generate power by 2020. He joins other Democrats who say Green will bring jobs. Republicans, such as Frank McNulty, disagree with that enthusiasm, saying the legislation will actually kill jobs.
Tyler's sponsored legislation includes:

- SB 10-1001 - Renewable Energy Standards
