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 ...

Today we delivered,” said Upton. “This bipartisan bill also strengthens and supports our Great Lakes. I applaud the House for coming together to advance key Flint funding in a responsible manner.” What WRDA does: ·         Authorizes t
Upton: Families of 9/11 Attacks Should be Allowed to Pursue Justice
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement upon the House of Representatives advancing a veto override for S. 2040, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism (JASTA) Act by a 348 to 77 vote. “As someone who experienced the horrors of 9/11 up close, it’s important to me that the families of the victims are allowed to pursue the justice they deserve. This legislation has enjoyed strong, bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate. It doesn’t make dramatic changes to existing law. It simply allows Americans to seek legal avenues against foreign governments that sponsor terrorist attacks on United States soil. I’m proud to stand up and do right by the victims of the heinous 9/11 attacks to vote in favor of overriding this veto.” In May of this year, the Senate passed JASTA by a voice vote. The bill then passed the House by a voice vote on September 9, 2016. Last week, the president vetoed the bill. The U.S. Senate voted to override the P
Upton Recognized for His Bipartisan Work to Fight Opioid Epidemic
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, was presented an award by the Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose for his bipartisan work in fighting the opioid misuse and overdose epidemic. Upton was honored for his support of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA). Upton chaired the House and Senate Conference meeting that finalized the comprehensive package before it was signed into law by President Obama in July. “I’m honored to receive this award, but we know more work remains,” said Upton. “Each day folks struggle with opioid misuse and an overdose can tragically snuff out a life in an instant. Nearly every 12 minutes, someone dies of a drug overdose here in America. It is a sad reality playing out in communities here in Southwest Michigan and across the country. Congress acted and got the job done, but we should continue to focus on these issues and improving the quality of life for all Americans.” The Coalition to Stop Opioid Overdose is an organization of more than
Upton and Peters Applaud Senate Passage of RPA Operation Legislation
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, and U.S. Senator Gary Peters, D-Michigan, today applauded Senate passage of H.R. 5944. This bipartisan legislation would update and modernize the leasing programs necessary to keep National Guard units and Air Force Remote Pilot Aircraft (RPA) operations on airfields where they currently operate. The legislation now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law. “W.K. Kellogg Airport in Battle Creek has enjoyed a close relationship with the Michigan National Guard, and our bipartisan legislation enables that productive partnership to continue,” said Upton. “Following the example set here in Southwest Michigan, which just received a state-of-the-art RPA flying mission, airfields around the nation now have the certainty to work in collaboration with the Air Force and the National Guard without jeopardizing their eligibility for vital federal support or risking weakening our nation’s defense. I want to thank Senator Peters for his partn
