Congressman Fred Upton was elected in 1987 to represent Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District, which is located along Lake Michigan in the southwestern corner of the state.

In 2011 Congressman Upton was elected by his colleagues to serve as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. As chairman, he has worked to increase the deployment of telecommunications services to every American household. He has fought to ensure that free speech and private innovation remain the hallmarks of this industry by opposing needless regulation. Congressman Upton’s other technology priorities include spectrum reform and keeping the Internet tax-free.

The chairman recently met with DDF to discuss a range of issues before the Energy and Commerce Committee, including: spectrum, a potential update to the Telecommunications Act, Internet governance, immigration reform, cybersecurity, and patent reform.

Michael O’Rielly was nominated for a seat on the Federal Communications Commission by President Barack Obama on August 1, 2013 and was confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate on October 29, 2013. He was sworn into office on November 4, 2013.

Prior to joining the agency, Commissioner O’Rielly served as a Policy Advisor in the Office of the Senate Republican Whip, led by U.S. Senator John Cornyn. He worked in the Republican Whip’s Office as an advisor from 2010 to 2012 and Deputy Chief of Staff and Policy Director from 2012 to 2013 for U.S. Senator Jon Kyl.  He previously worked for the Republican Policy Committee in the U.S. Senate as a Policy Analyst for banking, technology, transportation, trade, and commerce issues from 2009 to 2010.  Prior to this, Commissioner O’Rielly worked in the Office of U.S. Senator John Sununu, as Legislative Director from 2007 to 2009, and Senior Legislative Assistant from 2003 to 2007.  Before his tenure as a Senate staffer, he served as a Professional Staff Member on the Committee on Energy and Commerce in the United States House of Representatives from 1998 to 2003.

Commissioner O’Rielly recently joined DDF for his first meeting as a featured speaker, but he is no stranger to the Forum, having attended previous events with his former boss Senator John Sununu (R-NH).  “I feel like I am among old friends here,” the commissioner stated.  “I have worked with almost all of you over the years.”
