Becker earned his AA in General Studies from Morgan Community College. He went on to receive his BS in Business Administration from Colorado State University. He then earned his MBA from Colorado Christian University.
Becker has worked as executive director for the Morgan County Economic Development Corporation. He has also been an adjuster for Farmers Insurance Group. He currently works as director of economic development for Viaero Wireless. He is also an adjunct professor at Morgan Community College.
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.
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Becker served on these committees:
- Appropriations Committee, Colorado House of Representatives, Vice Chair
- Budget Committee, Colorado General Assembly
Becker has announced that he will resign, allowing Jerry Sonnenberg to run for re-election in the new 65th district. Had he decided to run, he would face Sonnenberg in the Republican primary on June 26, 2012. He will finish out the rest of his current term, ending on January 12, 2013.
Becker faced no opposition in the primary or general election.
In 2010, Becker raised $19,425 in contributions. 
No contributions to his campaign were of $1,000 or more.
