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 urges bipartisan solutions on health care
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) issued the following statement after U.S. Senate Republicans failed to achieve the votes necessary to repeal the Affordable Care Act and end Medicaid as we know it: “Families and small business owners can breathe a sigh of relief now that Senate Republicans have failed to find the votes to rip health coverage away from millions of Americans as part of their repeal scheme.  Families across the Tampa Bay area and across the country rallied at the grassroots to fight Trumpcare and appear to have won the day. I was proud to stand ‘shoulder-to-shoulder and heart-to-heart’ with all of you! “I urge my Republican colleagues now to turn to bipartisan solutions to lower health care costs and enhance competition.  Washington does not have all of the answers and it is time to have open public hearings in both Houses of Congress with knowledgeable experts, rather than draft a bill in the back room and try to ram it through.  President Trump’s
U.S. Rep. Castor Honors Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, Calls for Restoration of Rights
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) honored the anniversary of the Voting Rights Act (signed Aug. 6, 1965) with a visit to the Tampa Bay Academy of Hope, one of the many community organizations working on second chances for nonviolent ex-offenders.  She talked to a group of students and young adults about the state of voting rights in America and Florida.  U.S. Rep. Castor called on passage of the Voting Rights Advancement Act to address the 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder that weakened the federal Voting Rights Act.  She also explained the urgent need to amend the Florida Constitution to restore the rights of nonviolent ex-offenders who suffer under Florida's rigid Jim Crow-style law that essentially bars rights restoration after completion of a sentence and probation. “The restoration of civil rights is part of reintegration to society and is smart policy to ensure ex-offenders can secure employment and become productive citizens.  Most st
U.S. Rep. Castor Introduces Legislation to Tackle America's Rising Student Debt
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) today filed the Student Loan Relief Act (H.R. 3390) to tackle America’s rising student debt, give working families a more affordable path for college and spur economic activity.  U.S. Rep. Castor is offering the bill as the U.S. House version of the legislation filed by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. The Student Loan Relief Act will lower the cap on federal student loan interest to 4 percent for undergraduate students, 5 percent for graduate students and 6 percent for parents.  It would change the way student loan interest rates are calculated, allow borrowers with loans disbursed before the effective date to refinance their loans at the new rates and eliminate loan origination fees.  U.S. Sen. Nelson unveiled the Senate version earlier this month. “A college or graduate degree is an important pathway to higher wages, better jobs and a better future, but can be very expensive for working families,” U.S. Rep. Castor said.  “Today’s s
Bipartisan Group of Lawmakers Reintroduce The ACE Kids Act
This news release was issued by U.S. Rep. Joe Barton (TX6): WASHINGTON, D.C.: Today, Reps. Joe Barton (R-TX) and Kathy Castor (D-FL) introduced the Advancing Care for Exceptional Kids Act of 2017 (ACE Kids Act), H.R. 3325. The ACE Kids Act will help improve the coordination of and access to high quality care to ensure optimal outcomes for children with complex medical conditions on Medicaid, while assisting to contain costs. Other original cosponsors in the House include; Reps. Gene Green, Anna Eshoo, Dave Reichert, and Jaime Herrera Beutler. A similar bill, S. 428, was introduced in the Senate in February. Most children with complex medical conditions receive care from multiple pediatric providers at multiple locations whom they access through Medicaid. The state-by-state variability of Medicaid programs and lack of a coordinated care plan creates a care system that is often fragmented and unnecessarily burdensome for these children and families who frequently cross state lines to
