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 ...

Michigan House Delegation to Administration: Time for Action on Asian Carp
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, and U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Dearborn, led a bipartisan letter to the White House urging the Trump administration to immediately release the Brandon Road Lock and Dam study. The letter, signed by all 14 members of Michigan’s House Delegation, highlights the study as being the best way to learn how to prevent Asian Carp from entering the Great Lakes. The letter comes on the heels of the discovery of an 8-pound, 28-inch adult silver carp less than 10 miles from Lake Michigan. The letter notes that Asian Carp would have the “potential to decimate the Great Lakes we all love and depend on. It is absolutely imperative we step up our effort to further protect our lakes. The release of the Brandon Road Lock and Dam evaluation is an essential next step to ensure we safeguard our region’s $7 billion fishing industry, $16 billion boating industry, and $18 billion hunting and wildlife observation industry.” The full letter can be found online
Upton Greets 2017 Congressional Art Competition Winner Cami Hoogstraten
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today met with Otsego High School Sophomore Cameron “Cami” Hoogstraten, winner of the 2017 Congressional Art Competition for Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District. Cami’s winning piece, “Native American Dancer,” is a digital illustration with typography. The words, including those such as “love,” “home,” and “freedom,” are woven into the dancer’s outfit. It was chosen from more than 50 submissions.  “It was great to finally meet Cami, who traveled all the way from Otsego,” said Upton. “The arts play such a big role in our communities, especially for high schoolers looking to express themselves. I’m proud of Cami’s hard work and creativity and look forward to seeing her work hang in the U.S. Capitol for literally thousands to admire.” “I’ve been passionate about art practically my whole life,” said Cami. “I’m honored and excited to be part of such a special event. I can’t wait to see my art
House Committee Approves Upton-Dingell Amendment Protecting Great Lakes from Nuclear Waste
Today the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved a bipartisan amendment introduced by U.S. Rep. Fred Upton (MI-06) and U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (MI-12) expressing the sense of the Congress that the governments of the United States and Canada should not allow permanent or long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel or other radioactive waste near the Great Lakes. The amendment comes as Ontario Power Generation (OPG) seeks approval to construct a deep geologic repository for nuclear waste less than one mile from Lake Huron in Kincardine, Ontario. “It’s simple: Permanent radioactive waste storage doesn’t belong anywhere near our Great Lakes,” said Upton. “A spill near this precious natural resource would have devastating effects for public health, drinking water, the environment and our economy. This bipartisan amendment sends the proper signal that we will not sit idly by and allow permanent storage near our beloved Great Lakes. We also must continue the bipartisan
ICYMI: As Asian Carp discovery raises stakes, White House must release study
As Asian Carp discovery raises stakes, White House must release study By U.S. Reps. Fred Upton, Bill Huizenga, Jack Bergman, Justin Amash, John Moolenaar, Tim Walberg, Mike Bishop, Paul Mitchell and Dave Trott MLive June 30, 2017 As Michiganders, we have a fundamental understanding of the links between our state's economic health and the environmental health of the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes region provides drinking water, jobs, nearly endless recreational opportunities and, of course, countless memories. Any change to the ecosystem could have a serious impact on the lakeshores and on communities across our state. Thus, it was with great alarm that we learned one of the most severe and harmful threats to the Great Lakes appears to be getting even closer.  Last Friday, we learned that a live Asian carp was caught within 10 miles of Lake Michigan. This is significant not only because of its proximity but also its distance beyond the electric barriers t
