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.

Upton Statement on Committee Passage of Legislation to Modernize Nation’s Water Infrastructure
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after the House Committee on Energy and Commerce advanced H.R. 3387, the Drinking Water System Improvement Act, by a unanimous vote. “We lived through a terrible tragedy in Flint. And yes, there is still more work to be done there. But Flint was a wake-up call for the rest of the country. Whether rural or urban, folks raised their hands and asked the same question: Is our water safe? This bill helps answer that and is a major step forward in modernizing our nation’s drinking water and water infrastructure. I look forward to the full House of Representatives examining this legislation and getting it one step closer to the president’s desk.” H.R. 3387 would authorize $8 billion over five years for the drinking water revolving loan fund program. It would also expand the eligible uses of Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund to cover the costs associated with preconstruction activities and replacing
Upton Statement on Healthcare
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement: “The path forward to fixing the healthcare mess is seeking bipartisan, common-sense common-ground. At the top of our list is stabilizing insurance markets and ensuring lower premiums for patients. Our other goals are simple and what I’ve fought for all along: Protect those with pre-existing conditions and ensure states that expanded Medicaid, like Michigan, are secure. This will safeguard the most vulnerable amongst us so they do not have the rug ripped out from under them. I look forward to being a constructive, bipartisan partner in these efforts. To that effect, I have joined with nearly 50 members of both parties as part of the bipartisan “Problem Solvers” caucus to pursue these goals.”

Upton Self-Driving Car Legislation Gains Committee Approval
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today joined his colleagues on the House Energy and Commerce Committee in advancing seven bipartisan pieces of legislation. Among those was H.R. 3406, the PAVE Act authored by Upton and U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Michigan, which was approved by a 54 to 0 vote. “The future of the automobile is here and the automotive industry is completely revolutionizing how we will get around for decades to come,” said Upton. “Self-driving cars will play a critical role in Michigan’s economy and it’s important we have guidelines in place to help create jobs and boost our economy without sacrificing safety. This bipartisan legislation will allow self-driving car manufacturers to innovate while keeping gold standard safety levels in place.” This bipartisan legislation expands existing authority for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to evaluate and approve exemptions from federal motor vehicle safety standards only if there is
