Upton, GOP Leaders Unveil Plan for America's Job Creators

May 27, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC - House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) today joined fellow House Republicans to unveil a Plan for America's Job Creators. The Energy and Commerce Committee has been at the forefront of efforts to promote job creation, with a focus on expanding American-made energy and promoting a balanced regulatory approach that does not harm job creators. Upton issued the following statement: 

"Job creation is our driving force at the Energy and Commerce Committee, and all year long, we have been delivering the common-sense solutions that will help Americans get back to work. Already, the House has voted on important measures to rein in reckless regulations and prevent the Obama administration from driving gasoline and energy prices even higher. And this is just the beginning. In the coming months, we will continue pursuing our all-of-the-above energy solutions and working to stop the regulatory train wreck that threatens our economic recovery and is sending jobs overseas. 

"The Plan for America's Job Creators is a testament that Republicans are working tirelessly to deliver on the issue for which the American people expect and demand results: the need for job growth. From the American Energy Initiative to our clear and consistent focus on protecting job creators from harmful regulations and government red tape, we have put real solutions on the table when it comes to jobs and economic growth."
