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: ‘Cures’ Act ‘momentous’ for cancer research
President Barack Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act into law on Dec. 13. The legislation aims to provide additional funding to the NIH and FDA while streamlining the development of new drugs. A revised version of the bill, co-sponsored by U.S. Reps. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in a 392-to-26 vote on Nov. 30. It was then passed by the Senate in a 94-to-5 vote on Dec. 7. “Working together, we got the job done,” Upton and DeGette said in a joint statement. “Patients needed a game-changer — and it is our hope that history will look back at the Cures effort as the moment in time when the tide finally turned against disease.” The 21st Century Cures Act provides the NIH with $4.8 million in new, fully offset funding, according to a fact sheet provided by the Energy and Commerce Committee. The funds will be used to help advance the Precision Medicine Initiative and provide $1.5 bi

In 2017, we plan on pursuing an ambitious agenda that will tackle issues of great importance.

Upton Selected as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Energy
Today, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden announced the selection of U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, to Chair the Subcommittee on Energy. “My home state of Michigan is a national leader in promoting 21st century energy policies having just enacted long-term, bipartisan energy legislation. We must work to do the same here at the federal level. Energy solutions have always been a priority and we will continue to promote “all-of-the-above” strategies. Whether it be assuring families have access to affordable energy, updating standards and safety for pipelines, providing appropriate security for our grid, developing safer technologies for emerging energy productions, and using energy as part of our diplomatic arsenal,” said Upton. “During the past six years as chairman of the full committee on Energy and Commerce, we accomplished big things for American families, workers, and businesses. Bold solutions to problems big and small. And now, with this new a
Upton Votes to Curb Over-Burdensome Regulations
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in passing H.R. 26, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act by a vote of 237 to 187. This legislation would require a Congressional vote on any major rule or regulation coming from the executive branch that is estimated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to impact the economy by $100 million or more. Congress would have 70 legislative days to approve a major rule with an economic impact more than $100 million and send it to the president for signature, otherwise the rule would not take effect. There is a process that provides an exemption for national emergencies such as weather-related disasters. The executive branch includes the president, vice president, and cabinet as well as the federal agencies. Including the armed forces, the executive branch employs more than four million workers. “Here in the House we’ve long been focused on reining
