Jon Becker is a former Republican member of the Colorado House of Representatives, representing District 63 from 2011 to 2013.

Becker earned his AA in General Studies from Morgan Community College. He went on to receive his B.S. 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.

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]
