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.

ICYMI: One Year Later — Why 21st Century Cures Still Matters
One Year Later — Why 21st Century Cures Still Matters By U.S. Rep. Fred Upton and U.S. Rep. Dianna DeGette December 12, 2017 Roll Call One year ago this week, President Obama signed into law one of the most consequential bills passed by the 114th Congress: the landmark, bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act. He took the occasion of his final public bill-signing to praise the measure as a prime example of how important legislation should be passed: through consultation with stakeholders, deliberation, hearings featuring expert testimony, drafting and redrafting, and a spirit of collegiality and compromise. When we started the process of crafting 21st Century Cures — or Cures — four years ago, we began with one goal in mind: helping patients and their families. We were both inspired to act after hearing from folks in the research community as well as patients, families and advocates who all told us about the need for modernization and more resources at the National Institutes

Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after being named to serve on the House-Senate conference committee for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: “I look forward to being a member of the House-Senate conference committee for this historic tax reform opportunity.

U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that the Kalamazoo River Superfund site would be targeted for immediate, intense action: “We’ve been working alongside Kalamazoo leaders for years on this important issue. Everyone involved understands that it is essential that the final remedy protects the health and safety of Kalamazoo residents and allows for the site to be redeveloped and put to good use for the community. With this new priority designation, I am glad to see the Allied Paper/Kalamazoo River site is to receive ‘immediate and intense attention.’ Our Southwest Michigan community is eager to see this property cleaned up and put back to productive use. This new priority designation is certainly welcome news for all involved, particularly those of us who have working diligently on this issue for many years.”
