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 House Passage of Bill to Block Transfers of Guantanamo Detainees
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement after the House of Representatives advanced H.R. 5351, To prohibit the transfer of any individual detained at United States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by a bipartisan vote of 244 to 174. “Those held at Guantanamo are not ordinary criminals – they are hardened extremists in the midst of an endless war against our country, our citizens, and our values. President Obama should instead try working with us to bolster our national security and combat terrorism. Freeing any of these additional detainees would put American lives at risk. I’m proud to support these efforts to block to the Obama administration from prematurely freeing any more detainees from Guantanamo.” H.R. 5351 would block all transfers of Guantanamo Bay detainees through the end of the president’s term in office, or until the FY17 National Defense Authorization Act is signed into law, whichever happens first. In June, the Washington
Bipartisan Legislation to Modernize Rural Call Completion Unanimously Approved by Subcommittee
The Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology on Tuesday advanced bipartisan legislation, H.R. 2566, the Improving Rural Call Quality and Reliability Act of 2015, by a unanimous vote. This important legislation, championed by U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, will address persistent problems folks have in Southwest Michigan and across the country with rural call completion issues. These calls completion issues have a negative impact on local small businesses and can pose a threat to public safety when important messages go undelivered. “It’s never been easier to pick up the phone and dial a number to be in touch with friends and loved ones, no matter where they are in the country. But for those living in rural areas right here in Southwest Michigan and across the country, this connection isn’t always guaranteed,” said Upton. “It’s time we set higher standards for the integrity of our networks, but more importantly for the benefit of
Upton Highlights FIRST Robotics in Congressional Hearing
The Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade on Wednesday held a bipartisan hearing focused on advanced robots, and specifically the success of the STEM education program, FIRST Robotics. FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.” The program has grown from 20 to more than 45,000 teams nationwide since it was founded in 1989. Michigan has by far the highest number of FIRST teams per capita in the country. The hearing brought together educators, industry, and stakeholders in exploring the future of advanced robotics applications, educational initiatives, and how the United States is positioned to leverage these innovations in the future. “I have a personal relationship with FIRST Robotics and am a very proud supporter. From the St. Joseph ‘Average Joes’ team to the ‘2767 Stryke Force’ team in Kalamazoo, innovative STEM programs – like FIRST Robotics – allows for kids in our communities to d
Upton, House Vote to Reauthorize Carl D. Perkins Act
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, on Tuesday joined his colleagues in the House of Representatives in voting to advance H.R. 5587, the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act by a 405 to 5 vote. This bipartisan legislation reforms, modernizes, and reauthorizes the Carl D. Perkins Act. Since 1984, the Carl D. Perkins Act has provided federal support to state and local career and technical education (CTE) programs. These innovative programs – spearheaded at the state and local level – offer students the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to compete for good-paying jobs in a broad range of fields. Unfortunately, federal law has not been updated in more than a decade, and no longer reflects the realities and challenges facing students and workers in the 21st century economy. This reauthorization provides need improvements that empowers state and local community leaders by simplifying the application process for receivin
