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 President Trump's Rescission of DACA
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement after today’s announcement of President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy adopted by President Obama in 2012, which has brought relief from deportation for nearly 800,000 DACA students: "DREAMers represent the best of America as they have built productive lives, attended school, are working and are committed to our great country. Ending DACA is a morally bankrupt decision by President Trump who again shows a lack of appreciation of real American values. President Trump's decision will have significant economic consequences for communities across the country as well,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “I plan to return to Congress today and press my colleagues to pass legislation that provides a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers. Republicans in Congress have blocked progress on the Dream Act for years but hopefully Speaker Ryan will allow the Congress to vote and we can convince
U.S. Rep. Castor on the Trump Administration's Sabotage of ACA Open Enrollment Outreach
Today, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s latest sabotage of the health care of American families – devastating cuts to outreach efforts for the upcoming ACA marketplace open enrollment season: “President Trump's sabotage of affordable health care for hardworking families is cruel and misguided. Consumers want lower costs, affordable choices and a healthy insurance market. His decision to slash outreach and marketing is a bad business decision too. Thanks to previous outreach efforts, Floridians led the nation in sign-ups through HealthCare.gov and the Affordable Care Act. The ACA is here to stay, but it needs updating, not sabotage. “This announcement comes just two months before open enrollment begins, and I urge my colleagues to join Democrats in stabilizing the marketplaces for 2018, including by guaranteeing cost-sharing reduction payments and ensuring Americans looking for affordable coverage have access to ful
U.S. Rep. Castor presses for an increase in federal disaster aid
U.S. Representative Kathy Castor (FL14) is pressing for an increase in federal disaster aid to the highest share possible to help Floridians recover swiftly from the damage caused by Hurricane Irma.  She spoke directly with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long last night to urge reimbursement to local partners, such as Hillsborough County Public Schools, as quickly as possible. “I intend to be a proactive partner to our local Tampa and Hillsborough County communities to speed recovery,” U.S. Rep. Castor said.  “I will press electric utilities to restore power and ensure that our local partners have the resources to speed debris removal in the short term and fight for all disaster aid in the long term.  That is why I have joined with others in the Florida congressional delegation to call for an increase in the federal share of public assistance, swift reimbursement for local partners and prompt review and approval of individual r
U.S. Rep. Castor Encourages DACA Renewals before Oct. 5 Deadline After House Republicans Block Her Amendment to Protect DREAMers
Last night, House Republicans blocked an amendment by U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) to protect DREAMers from deportation following the announcement by the Trump Administration that DACA is ending and congressional action is needed right away to avoid deportation of up to 800,000 DREAMers. “Despite the chorus from some Republican lawmakers who say they want to protect DREAMers from deportation, the Republican majority refused to allow my amendment to come to the floor for debate and a vote.  Speaker Ryan and Republicans in Congress appear unwilling to take any step to protect DREAMers despite widespread calls for action from families, churches and businesses across America,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “Congress must immediately pass the DREAM Act to provide certainty and stability to these young people and our community.  I will fight every day and in every way possible to protect our young DREAMers.  They know no other home but America, and my Republican colleagues a
