Castor calls for investigation of 9/11 Sarasota connection


Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor Monday called on the House Intelligence Committee to investigate why the FBI did not disclose to Congress information it learned about a Saudi couple living in southwest Florida with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The Saudis came to the FBI’s attention after neighbors reported they’d suddenly fled their home near Sarasota two weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. “One of the great criticisms of the pre-9/11 intelligence operations,” Castor wrote in her letter to the committee’s two senior members, “was the lack of ...

Kathy Castor blasts GOP plan to cut hurricane hunters


For several weeks now, Tampa area Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Castor has been ripping into a proposal by House Republicans that would cut funding by 40 percent for so-called "hurricane hunters' - military plans that fly into hurricanes in order to measure and track them. The issue has grown in resonance after Hurricane Irene churned up significant damage in the Northeast. Concurrently, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was saying even before the storm hit that Congress would need to make commensurate budget cuts to pay for FEMA funding for hurricane cleanup. That statement has been met ...

U.S. Rep. Castor helps launch Cross-Bay Ferry
This morning, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) participated in the launch of the Cross-Bay Ferry and released the following statement: “The Cross-Bay Ferry has great potential to connect our neighbors to jobs, events and attractions. Cross-Bay Ferry service also would provide an important new transit option to a growing and vibrant urban area. We cannot rely on cars alone in the future.   “In 2009, I secured $485,000 for a feasibility study for ferry service through a U.S. DOT grant. In 2014, we built on that investment with another $4.8 million federal grant for ferry service to expand transportation options for Tampa Bay, grow jobs and remain competitive. I am hopeful that with the foresight and leadership of St. Petersburg Mayor Kriseman, Hillsborough County and other local leaders, we can put these funds to work before they expire in 2019. “Tampa Bay commuters are eager for more transportation alternatives, and I will continue to champion these investments which b
U.S. Rep. Castor's statement on reported deceptive strategy behind FL's solar amendment
Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the statement below following the reported deceptive strategy behind Florida’s solar amendment. “I represent the State of Florida on the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee and have a bird’s-eye view of energy policy across America. Florida lags far behind other states in unleashing the potential of solar power, renewable energy and energy efficiency that would save consumers money and reduce carbon pollution. Electric utility monopolies are working to kill cost-saving solar power installed by businesses and residents.  Electric monopolies want to control solar and renewable energy generation and use, and have consistently put their corporate profits ahead of the best interests of Florida consumers. “Now new press reports show what so many suspected -- the proposed Amendment 1 on the general election ballot is an anti-consumer sham.  I agree with the executive director of the Energy and Policy Institute -
New AARP report highlights significant out-of-pocket costs for family caregivers
A new AARP report issued today details the out-of-pocket costs for caregivers in the United States – on average, family caregivers are spending 20 percent of their total income on caregiving expenses. This builds on last year’s AARP family caregiving report, which revealed the number of family caregivers in the United States – about 40 million, with Florida home to nearly 2.7 million of these caregivers. “Addressing family caregiving is becoming a new normal in health care because family caregivers are making startling personal sacrifices in time as well as out-of-pocket expenses. A closer look at the work-related effects as well as the personal financial hardships shows the increasing need to come together to better understand the needs of our caregivers,” said U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14), who filed the bipartisan RAISE Family Caregivers Act to create a much-needed National Family Caregiving Strategy with recommendations by experts related to support services, training,
U.S. House passes HR985, local manufacturers win big
As lead cosponsor of the bipartisan Concrete Masonry Products, Research, Education and Promotion Act, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (D-FL) hailed this week’s 355-38 vote for passage of her bill by the U.S. House of Representatives as a big win for local manufacturers and jobs in Tampa Bay area, Florida and throughout the country. “Local manufacturers and many across Florida worked diligently with me to boost jobs in the concrete masonry industry through this legislation. If signed into law, businesses will have the ability to pool resources for research and to develop safer, more durable and more efficient products which would be a boon for building construction,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “This bill supports an industry made up of primarily small, local businesses that create local jobs in the competitive construction market.” U.S. Rep. Castor added:  “Buildings made of structurally-strong materials, such as concrete block, are vital to reduce the impacts of property in
