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 ...

Upton Applauds House Passage of Bills to Help our Veterans
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in advancing a pair of bipartisan bills to help our nation’s veterans. “Voting to improve the lives of our brave men and women in uniform is always the easiest vote for me to make. Tonight was no different,” said Upton. “A major problem for returning veterans, especially those serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, is finding civilian employment. These bipartisan bills will encourage businesses here in Southwest Michigan and across the country to hire and retain our veterans. I was proud to support these common-sense bills, applaud their bipartisan passage, and look forward to their swift consideration in the Senate.” H.R. 244, the HIRE Vets Act, sponsored by U.S. Rep. Paul Cook, R-California, requires the Department of Labor (DOL) to establish the HIRE Vets Medallion Program within two years of enactment, to annually recognize private-and-public sector businesses for their effo
ICYMI: Upton & Peters in The Hill: Self-driving cars are the next frontier of innovation and safety
Self-driving cars are the next frontier of innovation and safety By Rep. Fred Upton and Sen. Gary Peters The Hill Forget about “The Jetsons.” The future of the automobile is here and the automotive industry is completely revolutionizing how we will get around for decades to come. Thanks to the 75th Washington Auto Show, which closed on Sunday, consumers have had the opportunity to see new technological leaps and bounds from automakers that are making today’s vehicles bolder, more fuel-efficient, interconnected, and, in some cases, able to drive themselves. It's an exciting time for automakers, innovators, and consumers alike. Our home state of Michigan is leading the way in developing, testing and deploying the cars and trucks of the future. As the birthplace of the automotive industry, Michigan is a well-known home to innovative suppliers and manufacturers that make our cars and trucks safer, more efficient and more affordable. But Michigan also has a dense nexus of engine
Upton, Task Force Encourage President Trump to Focus on Great Lakes
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, joined colleagues on the Congressional Great Lakes Task Force in sending a bipartisan letter to President Donald J. Trump encouraging the new administration to work with the task force in advancing priorities vital to protecting and promoting the Great Lakes. “Growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan instilled in me a deep appreciation for our Great Lakes,” said Upton. “I have always worked in a responsible, bipartisan manner to improve the health and beauty of these precious natural resources. I appreciate the new administration’s willingness to engage on these important issues and look forward to working with them to promote, strengthen, and preserve our Great Lakes.” The letter highlights several initiatives important to the Great Lakes Task Force, a bipartisan, Congressional Members Organization with the mission of advocating for the strongest policies and programs that enhance the Great Lakes. Those initiatives include: · &
Upton Introduces Legislation to Strengthen Medicaid
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, introduced legislation, H.R. 829, the Prioritizing the Most Vulnerable Over Lottery Winners Act of 2017, in the U.S. House of Representatives that would strengthen Medicaid for those who need it most. “Medicaid is meant to help the most vulnerable amongst us – not high-dollar Lottery winners,” said Upton. “Our common-sense solution would alter how Medicaid eligibility is determined for those lucky enough to hit it big playing the Lottery, while continuing to prioritize the low-income population the program is meant to assist. I will continue to work on a bipartisan basis to strengthen critical programs like Medicaid to ensure they best serve our communities.” Under Medicaid regulations, income received as a lump sum, such as lottery winnings, is counted as income only in the month received. As a result, states are effectively not allowed to dis-enroll lottery winners from Medicaid. This forces taxpayers to bear the burden of paying the h
