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's Statement on the Senate GOP Delaying Their Trumpcare Vote
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement after the Senate GOP announced they will delay a vote on their Trumpcare bill: “Now that the Senate GOP has delayed their Trumpcare bill vote, policymakers should take this opportunity to join together in a bipartisan way to reduce the costs of health insurance and prescription drugs, halt the sabotage of the ACA by the Trump administration and improve and expand existing health care coverage, rather than rip it away from so many.  Trumpcare in both the House and the Senate was a costly travesty for American families and small business owners as it would have caused at least 22 million Americans to lose insurance coverage, imposed an Age Tax, raided the Medicare Trust Fund and undermined essential benefits and patient coverage for preexisting conditions.  These changes were proposed by the GOP in order to pay for huge tax cuts for wealthy special interests – truly unconscionable.  Everyday citizens
Castor-Ross Flood Bill Passes Unanimously Out of Committee
This news release was issued by U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross (FL-15): WASHINGTON, D.C., June 21, 2017 – Today, the House Financial Services Committee passed the bipartisan Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Act, introduced by Reps. Dennis A. Ross (R-FL-15) and Kathy Castor (D-FL-14). This bill would encourage the development of a robust private flood insurance market that will provide homeowners more coverage options and lower costs. Having been ordered out of the committee with broad bipartisan support and by a unanimous vote, the bill now is in line for consideration by the full House of Representatives. "Currently, many homeowners in Florida and across the country face unaffordable flood insurance premiums and a lack of coverage options, largely due to burdensome federal regulatory barriers that give the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) a harmful monopoly over flood insurance policies,” said Rep. Ross. “The Flood Insurance Market Parity and Modernization Ac
U.S. Rep. Castor Offers Amendment to Prevent Rollback of Clean Air Act Protections
Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14), Vice Ranking Member of the Energy & Commerce Committee, offered an amendment to H.R. 806, a Republican bill that proposes to roll back 50-year-old Clean Air Act protections.  Castor's amendment sought to protect children, older and vulnerable Americans from the Republican delay of critical smog standards at the EPA.  This week has been filled with Republican actions to strip health protections that have served Americans well for decades.  The Senate version of Trumpcare, introduced this week, would have ripped some $800 billion away from children, seniors and pregnant women – Medicaid protections, which are another 50 year old compact with Americans.  View U.S. Rep. Castor’s statement on the amendment here. ###
