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 ...

Upton Statement on the Firing of FBI Director Comey
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after FBI Director James Comey was abruptly fired based on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. “I have always advocated for an independent and non-political FBI. ‘Just the facts, please.’ I am not privy to the justification nor the details behind the firing but the replacement must restore the public confidence immediately. It cannot be a partisan selection. As it relates the Russian investigation, I remain hopeful that the existing bipartisan Congressional committees in the House and Senate can find answers for the many questions. If need be, I would support a special prosecutor at the appropriate time. We must continue to follow the facts wherever they lead.”  In March, Upton publicly called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the Department of Justice investigation into Russia.  
Upton on the Columbia Energy Exchange Podcast: The Prospects for U.S. Energy Legislation
Listen here: http://energypolicy.columbia.edu/hon-fred-upton-us-house-representatives-r-mi-prospects-us-energy-legislation-51517 Overview: President Trump campaigned on the promise to revitalize American infrastructure. In his first one hundred days in office, he approved the construction of Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipeline projects, two highly politicized and controversial energy projects. Now, lawmakers are considering the possibility of a broad infrastructure bill that may include not only roads and bridges, but also pipes to deliver clean drinking water, new oil and gas pipelines, and projects that would impact U.S. LNG exports, hydropower and offshore drilling. Host Bill Loveless (@bill_loveless) sits down withRepublican member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Hon. Fred Upton, to discuss anticipated legislation that would affect America's energy infrastructure and other issues including: The role of energy in a new infrastructure bill; Ho
Upton in the Herald Palladium: Help is on the way in opioid epidemic fight
Help is on the way in opioid epidemic fight By Rep. Fred Upton Sunday, May 2, 2017 Herald Palladium It seems like everyone I meet these days is in some way impacted by the tragic, ongoing opioid abuse epidemic. We see it every day here in Southwest Michigan. The statistics are as startling as they are heartbreaking: The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates more than 33,000 Americans died from opioid abuse in 2015, including nearly 2,000 from Michigan. That is 10 times as many deaths because of overdoses as there were 15 years ago. Sadly, these numbers continue to surge. This is why I was so pleased when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced last week the first round of grants to help states and territories combat this epidemic. These grants will be used specifically for strengthening public health surveillance, advancing the practice of pain management, improving access to treatment and recovery services, targeting availability and distribution o
ICYMI: Amey Upton in the Holland Sentinel: Skin Cancer Awareness Month a Timely Reminder before Beach Season
Skin Cancer Awareness Month a Timely Reminder before Beach Season By Amey Upton Holland Sentinel An estimated 87,110 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with melanoma this year. Here in Michigan, there was an estimated 2,560 new diagnoses of Melanoma in 2016 and more than 300 deaths. Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined number of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer cases. These statistics are even more tragic because, in many cases, skin cancer is preventable. Learning, teaching and practicing sun-safety is vital to reducing these numbers. Sun protection is particularly important for children. Childhood sunburns increase the risk of skin cancer later in life, so practicing sun-safety with your family can have a major impact on your children’s health down the line. Teach good habits early. When outside, wearing sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, protective clothing and lip balm should become as routine for children as brushing their teeth. Tann
