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 ...

Update on Funding to Fight Zika: House Republicans ignore pleas for a vote this week, fail to schedule vote next week
After returning from the longest summer recess in at least 60 years, House Republicans once again refused to address the public health threat of the Zika virus and announced they have no plans to take up a bill next week to address the fight against a growing outbreak. “It is unconscionable not to vote this week and I find it unfathomable that House Republicans are refusing to schedule a vote next week to fund vaccine development, research, and the tools our local communities need to prevent this public health crisis from growing, ” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “The inaction is irresponsible as my colleagues and neighbors throughout Florida have come together to urge and plea for funding to fight the Zika virus. The House Republican leadership doesn’t seem to care if one more pregnant woman is infected, if one more family is threatened with a lifetime of health woes, if one more baby is born with a condition that could have been prevented.” ###

U.S. Rep. Castor's statement on help for former ITT students
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement and helpful list of resources available to help former ITT students following its abrupt closure earlier this week: “I continue to be concerned for students who fall prey to unscrupulous online and for-profit colleges that use deceptive practices.  I am working to ensure our local neighbors are protected from the harm of these fraudulent, for-profit schools and receive relief from crushing student loan debt in addition to their crushed dreams. “ITT Technical Institutes, a for-profit college chain, closed abruptly and left thousands of students in the lurch including hundreds in Tampa Bay. While the ITT closings are national in scope, I have requested that the U.S. Department of Education provide direct assistance to Tampa Bay area students and particularly our veterans who now find themselves facing a new challenge. In a move consistent with the generous spirit of our community, I commend Hillsborough Community C
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor urges more transparency with price hikes by drug manufacturers
After calling for a congressional hearing last week on the outrageous cost increases by Mylan corporation for the price of the EpiPen, today U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) cosponsored bipartisan and bicameral legislation to address skyrocketing prescription drug price increases by corporations. The FAIR Drug Pricing Act would require basic transparency for pharmaceutical corporations that increase drug prices by more than 10 percent a year. “We must work to ensure that life-saving treatments are never out of reach for all of our neighbors and especially our most vulnerable,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “U.S. prescription drug spending has already reached a record high of $425 billion in 2015, with expectations that such spending will surpass $600 billion by 2020. The ‘hands off’ approach in the Republican-led Congress has allowed pharmaceutical corporations to stick it to consumers and that must stop. ” The FAIR Drug Pricing Act would require drug manufacturers to notify the
