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 announces $6M grant for HCC
Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) announced nearly $6 million to boost Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) education opportunities, especially for Hispanic-American students. The grant is for five-years from the U.S. Department of Education to Hillsborough Community College (HCC) and is the largest in its history in this category. The grant was awarded through the U.S. Department of Education’s Hispanic-Serving Institutions – Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (HSI STEM) and Articulation Program. HSI provides grant funding to colleges and universities to assist with bolstering academics to expand educational opportunities for Hispanic Americans and other underrepresented populations. “Higher-wage jobs for Tampa-area graduates are an important part of growing an economy that works for all of us. Investments in a well-educated STEM workforce keep our region and nation competitive in the global marketplace,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “Most im
U.S. Rep. Castor's statement on West Virginia v. EPA's oral Arguments
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor attended today's oral arguments in West Virginia v. EPA in which certain states, utilities and fossil fuel companies are challenging President Obama’s Clean Power Plan at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.   “America needs to move toward clean, renewable energy sources now to slow climate change through policies that support renewable energy and limit carbon emissions.  Climate change is very costly to Florida families, our economy and local communities. EPA is right to implement the Clean Air Act to discourage carbon pollution and help states transition to clean energy solutions and boost the jobs of the future,” said U.S. Rep. Castor.  An extensive coalition of cities, including seven from Florida, is defending the Clean Power Plan because cities are the first responders when it comes to addressing climate change impacts like overwhelmed water infrastructure, extreme weather events and sea level rise.  Local communiti
After months of pleas from experts and Florida leaders, Congress passes bill for Zika funding
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement and timeline relating to misplaced congressional priorities that led to the substantial delay in providing an emergency response to the Zika virus. The U.S. Congress finally passed $1.1 billion in emergency funding late last night, more than seven months after action was requested by President Obama. “The seven-month delay in passing a Zika emergency response bill for research, testing and education highlights the misplaced priorities of a Congress that refuses to address issues of importance to American families. The special interests still have too much influence in Washington, D.C. During the past six months, I have witnessed numerous bills come to floor to benefit wealthy special interests, while issues relating to everyday working Americans go unaddressed. Despite many calls for action to address the high cost of pharmaceuticals, attempts to address special interest money in politics, ‘No Fly No Buy’
U.S. Rep. Castor announces $1.9M federal grant to strengthen TPD community policing
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) announced today that Tampa Police Department is the recipient of a $1.9 million federal grant to hire 15 more officers to strengthen its community policing efforts. “Fifteen more officers on the street where they are needed and training to be more community-oriented are critical to diffuse tensions and build trust,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “Community policing builds trust and partnerships, which help officers better respond to the diverse concerns of our neighbors. It is a critical tool to help all of us come together and promote respect, peace and understanding in our neighborhoods. Community policing is also well-suited for the prevention of terrorism.” The federal grant was awarded through the U.S. Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS). “We are beyond thrilled to receive this grant from DOJ,” Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said. “Any time we can put more officers on the streets to strengthen our community r
