U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released a new report titled 2017: The Year in Review and A Look Aheadwhich outlines policy initiatives his office tackled in the last year and sets priorities for the new year ahead in 2018. Upton also released the following statement:

“2017 was a transformational year but for me, my focus never wavered from local initiatives such as helping constituents with problems big and small, and on bipartisan policies that create jobs and improve our economy. As we look ahead to 2018, we must continue our work on advancing an agenda that focuses on items folks in Michigan care most about. We have our work cut out for us. But I believe that by working together – Republicans and Democrats – we can and we will solve many of the pressing issues before us.”

The report breaks down 10 specific policy areas in which Upton has been a bipartisan leader:  Leadership and results for Southwest Michigan, jobs and the economy, 21st Century Cures and health care, national security, the Great Lakes, pro-growth tax reform, the opioids epidemic, immigration, energy, and education.
