The oldest standing legislative committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Energy and Commerce Committee, has jurisdiction over a broad swathe of issues ranging from energy policy, food and drug safety, and health care to telecommuications and interstate and foreign commerce.
Join National Journal LIVE and Fawn Johnson, National Journal's domestic policy reporter, for an in-depth conversation with Representative Fred Upton, (R-MI), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee.
The discussion will focus on the energy and commerce priorities for the committee— including a conversation about the possibility of a bipartisan energy bill this year. That measure would address energy production, regulatory issues, workforce development, energy efficiency and environmentally sound infrastructure upgrades. On the commerce front, we'll ask the Chairman about his 21st Century Cures Act which seeks to encourage health care innovation. Other topics of discussion will include next steps for Obamacare, and transparency at the Federal Communications Commission.
