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 ...

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. Kathy Castor (FL14) is attending the commissioning of the USS Gabrielle Giffords, scheduled in Galveston, Texas.  View photos from last night's ceremony. U.S. Rep. Castor made the following statement commemorating this great honor: "Gabby's journey is an inspiration," said U.S. Rep. Castor.  "Facing adversity many of us will never completely understand, she has fought both in Congress and outside of it to make our country a safer place for our families and children.  Being the first living woman since Martha Washington to have a Naval warship named after them is a well-deserved honor.  I know her namesake will be a symbol of peace and understanding, just like Gabby." U.S. Reps. Castor and Giffords were both elected in 2006 and formed an instant friendship in Congress, serving together on the Armed Services committee.  U.S. Rep. Castor expressed her sorrow when her colleague and friend was shot in 2011, and prayed for her recovery.  Giffords re
U.S. Rep. Castor Works with Florida Delegation to Demand End to Sabotage of Insurance Coverage
House Republicans voted last month to rip health care coverage from working families, and while families across America await the outcome of congressional action, the Trump Administration continues to undermine the stability of the marketplace and refuses to commit to keeping premiums low.  The effect of the Trump Administration’s sabotage strategy is already being felt in states around the country. “President Trump and his administration should focus on helping hardworking families keep their affordable health coverage rather than sticking Americans with much higher insurance bills,” said U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14), who is leading Florida’s entire Democratic Congressional Delegation to urge Pres. Trump to act to protect affordable health care by committing to maintaining cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments or else be responsible for higher costs and dire consequences for Florida families.  “Support is critical for affordable quality health coverage and Presid

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement after the congressional Republican vote today to rip consumer protections away from hardworking families and small businesses – elevating the interests of Wall Street over Main Street: “Republicans have forgotten the pain of working families in Tampa and across America during the Great Recession.  I have not.  I remember all too well how many people lost their homes and lost their jobs.  I worked to keep many of my neighbors out of foreclosure and connect them with jobs.  In response to the worst economic collapse in our lifetimes, I worked with colleagues to pass Wall Street Reform and outlaw the Wall Street risky deals that lead to the Great Recession.  We took action so that the economic collapse we experienced would never happen again.  Today, House Republicans rolled back many of the most important Wall Street reforms and consumer protections.  They care more about their Wall Str

Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement offering prayer and support following this morning’s shooting involving her colleagues, congressional staff, Capitol Police and others: “I am praying for friends, colleagues, congressional staff and Capitol Police, as well as any others who were injured or in danger this morning.  As always, I am also grateful for the rapid response by all first responders who are there for all of us at the toughest times, and whose actions likely saved lives and prevented more injuries.  I was in the Capitol around the time of the shooting, and while we are shocked and saddened by another act of violence, we are determined that it will not deter us in any way from our duties.” ###
