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 ...

U.S. Rep. Castor on Health Care: Return to Bipartisan Solutions
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released an analysis of the Graham-Cassidy bill confirming that the GOP bill will rip health insurance away from millions of hardworking Americans: “Time is of the essence to stop the Republican plan to hike costs and rip health coverage away from our neighbors,” said U.S. Rep. Castor.  “Doctors, nurses, hospitals, the AARP and health organizations in Tampa Bay and across the nation are speaking out strongly in opposition to the Republican bill.  I strongly urge Republicans and President Trump to return to bipartisan efforts to lower costs and boost coverage. “The nonpartisan CBO has confirmed what we have all suspected since Republicans’ latest attempt to cut coverage: millions of Americans would lose their health coverage compared to the Affordable Care Act while throwing the insurance markets that all of us depend on into chaos.  Specifically,
U.S. Rep. Castor's Statement on the Horrific Shooting in Las Vegas
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement following the horrific shooting in Las Vegas that claimed at least 50 innocent lives and injured more than 400: “I am shocked and saddened by the horrific act of gun violence in Las Vegas.  I am praying for the victims and their families and know many across the Tampa Bay area are doing the same.  Day in and day out, too many American families suffer the consequences of our country’s gun violence epidemic.  Certainly, we can come together to pass common sense safety requirements such as background checks and limits on civilian use of military-style weapons, and to enforce the laws on the books.  The sorrow that I and so many around the country feel for the innocent men and women whose lives were cruelly cut short by this heartless act of domestic terrorism is immeasurable.  We will never allow these acts of terror to control us – but after so many lives lost around our country for so long b

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement regarding the announcement of cuts to embassy staffing in Havana and travel warning for Americans to Cuba: “The safety and security of American diplomats and their families is paramount regardless of where they serve,” said U.S. Rep. Castor.  “I strongly support U.S. and Cuban efforts to determine who is responsible for the harmful sonar attacks as they must be held accountable. “I am concerned however that today’s announcement and indefinite suspension of visa processing and consular services goes too far and unnecessarily harms the ability of Cuban and American families to travel and see loved ones.  The State Department must swiftly develop contingency plans to continue to allow families to travel from the island.  Many of my neighbors who have been waiting for the opportunity to reconnect with loved ones now face unnecessary and heartbreaking barriers.  Cuba, Florida and many Caribbe

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14), Vice Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, released the following statement after Tampa Electric and Emera Inc. announced efforts to significantly expand their use of solar power: “Tampa Electric and Emera’s announcement today marks a significant step toward harnessing the power of solar energy for consumers and businesses in the Tampa Bay area.  Florida is far behind other states in its commitment to clean energy and energy efficiency technology.  Meanwhile the costs of the changing climate continue to grow.  Florida cannot afford to miss out on the clean energy jobs and cost-saving technologies of the future.  Tampa Electric’s new investment in solar energy and conservation sets the Tampa Bay area on the path to a cleaner environment, lower costs and the higher-paying jobs in clean energy." ###
