Interviews with Reps. Fred Upton and Steve Israel

KING: The man heading that investigation [into Solyandra] is the Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton; we spoke a short time ago. KING: Mr. Chairman, I want to get into the details in a second, but first I want to set the threshold question, is it your question whether political influence, campaign contributions had role here or is your biggest question whether the administration should have seen a flashing light saying this company was in trouble and not giving them the money? REP. FRED UPTON (R), MICHIGAN: All of the above. From the way that I understand it, the Bush ...

Upton 'bitterly disappointed' with super committee's failure

Congressman Fred Upton said he is "bitterly disappointed" that the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction did not reach an agreement to trim $1.5 trillion from the federal deficit."I spent the last three months as one of 12 members who faced steep odds to find agreement, but who shared an understanding that our fiscal challenges cannot be ignored," Upton said in a statement released tonight. "I am bitterly disappointed that we were not able to find enough common ground to deliver the deficit reduction choices that Congress needs to make, but I am not deterred in my commitment to keep at ...

Fred Upton is on the debt 'super committee'

Michigan Republican Fred Upton has established his credentials as an adversary of environmental regulation during his chairmanship of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. So his appointment to the "super committee" charged with working out cuts to address the nation's budget deficit is certain to raise eyebrows among environmentalists. Upton has shepherded a bill to strip the Environmental Protection Agency of its authority to regulate greenhouse gases, which a Supreme Court decision said was the purview of the agency. Once a champion of banning incandescent light bulbs, he has promised ...

ICYMI: In Harvey’s wake, energy security legislation needed now more than ever
In Harvey’s wake, energy security legislation needed now more than ever By U.S. Rep. Fred Upton and Valerie Brader, Executive Director, Michigan Agency for Energy September 6, 2017 The Hill   Bipartisanship has been rare in Congress lately, but one shining example of it has been on increasing our efforts on energy security issues. That needs to continue. In July, the U.S. House passed with overwhelming Republican and Democratic support H.R. 3050, the Enhancing State Energy Security Planning and Emergency Preparedness Act of 2017. As the Senate returns from its summer recess, we are hopeful the bill will see similar success on the other side of the Capitol. As Hurricane Harvey has taught us, making sure our energy resources are safe, secure and plentiful should not be a partisan issue. It’s an issue we can’t afford to wait on. If passed by the Senate, the Enhancing State Energy Security Planning and Emergency Preparedness Act of 2017 will provide federal financial help
Upton Urges Action on Line 5
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today sent a letter to Enbridge urging action and improved transparency as it relates to the Line 5 pipeline, which runs under the Straits of Mackinac. The letter comes after the news that the State of Michigan had ordered Enbridge to restore a protective coating on parts of Line 5. “I am deeply concerned by recent information confirming gaps in the protective coating on a portion of the pipeline that runs under the Straits of Mackinac, especially given your company’s acknowledgement that construction activities may have caused or contributed to loss of coating.  These most recent findings raise serious concerns about Enbridge’s actions and its compliance with pipeline safety laws and regulations necessary to ensure public health and safety and the protection of our natural resources. As you know, the Great Lakes are a precious natural resource for our state and the entire Midwest region. A spill would be catastrophic with immediate
Upton Statement on Vote Against Cutting EPA
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after voting against an amendment before the U.S. House of Representatives that would have reduced the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) budget by nearly $2 billion – almost a quarter of the current budget. The amendment, had it been adopted, would have also made drastic cuts to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). The amendment failed by a 260 to 151 vote. “The passage of this amendment would have made drastic cuts to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GRLI). That’s a non-starter for me. The GLRI is vital to the health of our Great Lakes: It helps us fight Asian Carp and other invasive species, invests in Michigan jobs, our drinking water, and way of life. I have consistently stood up against misguided efforts to undermine this program and will continue to do so. The amendment was bad news from the start and I’m very pleased that Republicans and Democrats came together to defeat it.
Upton Co-Sponsors Save Local Business Act
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, this week co-sponsored H.R. 3441, the Save Local Business Act. This bipartisan legislation would amend the National Labor Relations Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act to restore the common-sense definition of what it means to be an employer. “This bipartisan legislation will fix misguided Obama-era policy that pits the big guys versus the little guys,” said Upton. “Under our solution, workers, and the businesses they work for, will receive much needed certainty under the law. This piece of legislation will help our local small businesses right here in Southwest Michigan grow and succeed. I hope to see it move through the legislative process quickly.”   H.R. 3441 clarifies that two or more employers must have “actual, direct, and immediate” control over employees to be considered joint employees. The bill also rolls back the joint employer protection rule to protect American jobs, small business owners, and entrepreneurship. Accor
