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 ...

"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 Calls for Continued Vigilance of Line 5
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after Enbridge completed a successful pressure test over the weekend:  “A spill on our Great Lakes would be catastrophic with immediate and long-term harm. This test is a step forward but we must remain vigilant as this is high stakes for our Great Lakes. It is of the utmost importance that Enbridge fully complies with the tough standards we mandated under law. This testing took place thanks in part to bipartisan pipeline safety legislation I helped usher into law in 2016. While this specific test was successful, we must continue to probe Line 5 for any vulnerabilities. I look forward to seeing these additional tests move forward this year for the betterment and safety of the entire Great Lakes region.” In 2016, Upton helped usher the PIPES Act, bipartisan pipeline safety legislation, into law. The PIPES Act included a provision, championed by Upton, which requires increased annual inspections for u

Upton, House Stand up for Michigan Veterans
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives advanced S. 1094, the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protecting Act of 2017 by a bipartisan vote of 368 to 55. This legislation now heads to the president’s desk for signature into law. “Veterans here in Michigan and across the country deserve the very highest quality medical care. Despite scandal after scandal, the VA refuses or cannot hold bad actors accountable. It’s not fair to the good employees at the VA. This bipartisan legislation ensures bad actors at the VA are held accountable and face real consequences for their actions. With real accountability in place, we can finally make the changes desperately needed to fix the VA once and for all. Our veterans deserve nothing less.” S. 1094 would streamline the process to remove, demote, or suspend VA employees for poor performance or misconduct, expand whistleblower protections

U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters today announced that President Trump will award the Medal of Honor to Vietnam War Veteran James C. McCloughan on July 31, 2017. This follows legislation passed by Senators Stabenow and Peters and Congressman Upton to make then-Private First Class McCloughan eligible for our nation’s highest military honor.  Their legislation passed the Senate as part of the National Defense Authorization Act and was signed into law by President Obama in December of 2016.  “Then-Private First Class James McCloughan is an American hero – there is no doubt about that. During close-combat, when his fellow soldiers were in dire need, PFC McCloughan stepped up. His selfless actions saved lives,” said Congressman Upton. “When he was done serving our country, PFC McCloughan quietly returned home to South Haven where he dedicated his life to helping others, as a coach and teacher at South Haven High
