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.

Upton, House Advance Legislation to Modernize Rural Call Completion
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, joined his colleagues in the House of Representatives today in advancing bipartisan legislation, H.R. 2566, the Improving Rural Call Quality and Reliability Act of 2015, by a unanimous vote. This legislation, championed by Upton, will address persistent problems folks have in Southwest Michigan and across the country with rural call completion issues. These call completion issues have a negative impact on local small businesses and can pose a threat to public safety when important messages go undelivered. “For many living in the more rural parts of our Southwest Michigan community, communication issues persist,” said Upton. “It’s time we set higher standards for the integrity of our networks and for the benefit of folks who need it here at home. This bipartisan legislation takes meaningful action to address this problem, I’m proud to support it, and I’m hopeful that the Senate will take it up very soon.” H.R. 2566 requires intermedia

This is why I was proud to support passage of this critical piece of legislation. It’s a common-sense, bipartisan bill that will inform lawmakers on outdoor recreation policy and also help optimize business investments in the outdoor recreation industry. It’s important we work together to strengthen our natural resources like the Great Lakes and also improve our outdoor recreation system.”

Cards may be dropped off at either of his constituent service offices in Kalamazoo or St. Joseph/Benton Harbor. Upton’s offices will accept cards dropped off until 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, and will
