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.

U.S. Rep. Castor Rebukes GOP’s Tax Scam for Harm to Tampa Bay and America
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) rebuked Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans for their devastating tax scam, which raises taxes on tens of millions of hardworking Americans, small businesses, college students, seniors, veterans and more in order to provide huge, deficit-exploding tax breaks to the super rich and big corporations.  In fact, a new analysis by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center found that the GOP tax bill will raise taxes on a staggering 36 million middle-class households across America. “Republicans missed an opportunity to work on a bipartisan bill that would boost wages, create jobs, rebuild America’s infrastructure and keep jobs from moving overseas,” U.S. Rep. Castor said.  “Instead, the super rich and big corporations will enjoy a massive tax windfall at the expense of our kids and grandkids who will shoulder the enormous $1.5 Trillion debt.  This is the height of fiscal irresponsibility. “Since its hurried release, Speaker Ryan and

Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) introduced bipartisan legislation to end taxpayer-funded awards and settlements for workplace discrimination, including sexual harassment, in Congress: “It is outrageous that taxpayers foot the bill for secret, taxpayer-funded settlements for workplace harassment and discrimination by members of Congress,” said U.S. Rep. Castor.  “Instead, members of Congress should be personally liable for such workplace harassment claims and I filed a bill today to make that happen. I am pleased to joined by my colleague, U.S. Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE), on this important bipartisan legislation." “Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives took an important step by voting to require annual sexual harassment training for members and staff,” said U.S. Rep. Castor.  “Now Congress must act to end taxpayer-funded awards and settlements for sexual harassment in Congress.  Congress also must completely reform the process for complaints and t
U.S. Rep. Castor on the Trump Administration's Newest Cuba Restrictions
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement today regarding the Trump administration’s newest restrictions on travel and trade with Cuba: “The regulations announced today are part of the backwards policy of the Trump administration to return to failed Cold War isolationist policies toward Cuba and the Cuban people.  Instead, America should be focused on supporting Cuba’s growing private sector by encouraging more Americans to travel to Cuba rather than adding burdensome restrictions on Americans, cultural exchanges and businesses. “Since the U.S. reestablished diplomatic ties with Cuba, thousands of Americans have visited and numerous businesses have explored new markets.  These activities have not only opened new economic opportunities for Americans and Cubans alike, they serve as an integral part of our efforts to promote the spread of democracy and ensure the security of our region.  I am disappointed that today’s regulations do noth

Kathy Castor (FL14) issued the following statement following the passing of Jan Platt, a trailblazer and Tampa icon: "Jan Platt inspired me to be a better public servant.  She was honest, ethical and loved our Tampa community – from the waters of Tampa Bay to the pristine, wooded areas she worked to protect. “I was honored to serve alongside Jan during my time on the Hillsborough County Commission and saw her frequently at her granddaughter, Emma’s, soccer games as Emma is a 10-year teammate with my daughter, Chrissy.  We missed her at tonight’s Plant High School Girls soccer game. “She was an inspiration to me and many others throughout her 30-year career in elected office.  A passionate leader, Jan’s love of the environment led her to dedicate herself to protecting and preserving our community’s natural resources, which has left an indelible legacy and future generations will be able to enjoy our bay and its waters the same way she did
