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: Fighting for our Great Lakes
Fighting for our Great Lakes By U.S. Rep. Fred Upton Holland Sentinel Whether it's a lazy Sunday on the lake with family, fishing with friends, enjoying a sunset pontoon boat cruise or any number of activities — Michiganders all have a deep, personal connection to our lakes. This is why it was so alarming to learn of a proposed drastic funding cut for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative under a budget proposal from the White House last week. Having grown up on the shores of Lake Michigan, I've always had a deep appreciation for our Great Lakes and have always worked in a responsible, bipartisan manner to improve the health and beauty of these precious natural resources. As a fiscal conservative, I also understand that, as a nation, we face serious concerns regarding our national debt. We absolutely do need to make tough choices to balance our budget. But gutting protections for our Great Lakes is the wrong place to do it. This is the reason I recently joined my colleagues
Upton Meets with Southwest Michigan Farmers
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following photo and statement after meeting with a group of Southwest Michigan farmers in his Washington, D.C., office. “Today’s meeting was productive and informative. Farmers are the backbone of our Southwest Michigan economy and we discussed ways we can work together to improve their economic outlook and provide much-needed certainty so they can plan for the future. We also had a frank and open talk about our broken immigration system and the negative effect it has on our agricultural labor workforce. I continue to stand with our farmers and look forward to being a constructive partner into the future.” Background: Upton has long-supported bipartisan immigration reform. He recently co-sponsored legislation, H.R. 1468, the Recognizing America’s Children Act, that provides legal status to undocumented children and young adults. This legislation would provide certainty for many families and local farmers dependent on migr
Upton Statement on Supreme Court Nomination Hearing
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement on the Supreme Court Nomination Hearing:  “Over the course of these past four days, Judge Gorsuch has proven himself a man of the highest character. His unwavering commitment to the rule of law will make him an outstanding member of the Supreme Court. I have no doubt he will serve our country with distinction and uphold our Constitution. I want to again urge my colleagues in the Senate to swiftly confirm Judge Gorsuch."
Upton Applauds Federal Funds for Flint
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement on news that the city of Flint, Michigan has been awarded a $100 million emergency grant to fund drinking-water infrastructure: “These much-needed funds will provide a huge benefit to the people of Flint. We worked extremely hard, on a bipartisan basis, to make sure this funding was included in the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act. From the start of this crisis, I have been an outspoken proponent of aid for Flint. The federal government had a role to play in this tragedy, and so the federal government bears responsibility to help make the situation right. I was proud to support these efforts and will continue to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to upgrade our nation’s water infrastructure needs.”
