WASHINGTON (WHTC) - The Lakeshore’s two Congressmen were split on the bill that averted the “Fiscal Cliff” in Washington. Zeeland’s Bill Huizenga joined with 149 of his fellow Republicans in voting against the legislation, saying that the bill adds to the federal debt and does not seriously address deficit reduction. Fred Upton of St. Joseph, who had been involved in the ongoing discussions as chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, voted for the bill, saying that he didn’t want taxes to rise, and that he and other GOP members will continue to work on cutting federal spending during the new session of Congress that begins later this month.
