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 in Support of NDAA
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton today joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in voting for the Conference Report for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 by a vote of 356 to 70. “We all must be clear eyed and resolute – our nation faces grave threats from terrorist organizations and rogue nations alike. This is why it’s important to support the National Defense Authorization Act because it delivers on one of our most basic Constitutional duties: Providing for the common defense. Among other important provisions, this NDAA will boost investments in our military’s cybersecurity capabilities, which is welcome news for our Battle Creek Cyber Command. It also provides the largest pay raise for our troops in eight years. I am proud to support this legislation as it will help make our country safer and strengthen our national security and look forward to the president signing it into law. The NDAA enjoys overwhelming bipartisan support. The House vo
VIDEO: Legislators honored for bipartisan work
Legislators honored for bipartisan work  WNDU/Gray TV November 8, 2017  WASHINGTON  (Gray DC) -- Divisive, toxic, or just simply mean. Those are words that could be used to describe the current political climate. However, Tuesday night in Washington, a select group of Republicans and Democrats were rewarded for working together. Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) said, "Together, we could not be beaten." He was talking about working across the aisle, with Colorado Democrat, Diana DeGette. Congresswoman DeGette said, "We have had some really important milestones in bipartisanship." The Javits Foundation honored the representatives for their work on the 21st Century Cures Act. The law, signed last year by President Obama, allocated nearly five billion dollars for medical research and battling the opioid epidemic. Upton said, "We have our issues, we know that we do, between our two sides. You got to get around that, and you've got to find an area where you can agree, no
VIDEO: Time for Tax Reform
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, and Republicans in the Michigan Congressional Delegation released the following video to promote efforts in the U.S. House of Representatives to pass H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This historic legislation, which updates the tax code for the first time since 1986, will benefit Michigan middle-class families by doubling the standard deduction, expanding the Child Tax Credit, and creating more opportunity.  Click here to watch the video. In October, the Michigan members also joined forces on an op-ed in the Detroit News highlighting the benefits the tax plan would have on Michigan middle-class families and small businesses. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed out of the Ways and Means Committee on Thursday, and is expected to receive and up or down vote before the full House of Representatives later this week.

Upton: The Time for Middle-Class Tax Reform & Relief is Now
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today applauded the introduction of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, a bold piece of legislation that will overhaul our nation’s tax code for the first time in 31 years. Upton released the following statement: “The time for middle-class and small business tax reform and relief is now,” said Upton. “Our tax code has not been updated since 1986 and it shows. Families pay too much and small businesses are stuck in a tax system that holds them back. A simplified, modernized tax code will lower taxes on low-income and middle-class Michigan families and allow them to keep more of their paychecks. Small businesses will see their tax burden slashed so they can grow and hire more local workers. This plan, which I’m hopeful can be bipartisan, will lower the rates for those who need relief the most, bring jobs back home, and give needed certainty to our job creators right here in Michigan. This is an historic opportunity and I look forward to wo
