Granger and Lowey—congressional couple that’s odd for...


... getting along WASHINGTON (JTA) — In any other town at any other time they would be a boring, if worthy, pair: Wonkish grandmothers sorting through nitty-gritty foreign policy and budgetary details to keep their country influential and safe. But in Washington at a time of intense partisan rancor, the friendly and productive relationship between Reps. Kay Granger (R-Texas) and Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) is decidedly odd. Granger and Lowey, the top foreign appropriators in the U.S. House of Representatives, are being noticed for what was commonplace a decade or so ago: focusing on ...


GRANGER BILL REQUIRES ADMINISTRATION TO SELL F-16s TO TAIWAN


Washington, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) today introduced legislation to require the Obama Administration to sell 66 new F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan. The legislation is a House companion bill to Senators Cornyn and Menendez’ Taiwan Airpower Modernization Act of 2011. The legislation will force the Obama Administration to comply with its legal obligations under the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979 which mandates the United States provide Taiwan with the military equipment it needs to defend its’ homeland. “The sale of F-16s to Taiwan ensures our key strategic ...


Granger calls out McCain over F-35 joint strike fighter


Rep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth, called Friday for increased production of the F-35 joint strike fighter and suggested that its critics, namely Sen. John McCain, visit the mile-long factory on the city's west side before continuing to push for cuts in the Defense Department's largest weapons program. Granger made her remarks after a morning tour of the facility with Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., whose district includes Eglin Air Force Base, where F-35 pilots are trained. Both said that when Congress reconvenes next week, members should consider the nation's security goals before cutting into ...

Granger Speaks on the House Floor in Support of the Fiscal Year 2017 Defense Appropriations Bill
Mr. Chairman, I rise in strong support of H.R. 1301, the FY17 Department of Defense Appropriations Act. The world is more dangerous and unstable than any time is recent history. The U.S. and our allies face constant threats from countries including Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea. ISIS and other global terrorists threaten our very way of life.  Our number one responsibility as Members of Congress is to provide for the defense of this nation.  I commend Chairman Frelinghuysen for the outstanding job he did drafting the FY17 bill. He deserves our thanks for producing such a significant and meaningful bill. Since becoming the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairwoman, I have spent a lot of time talking to senior defense leadership to find out what they need to combat these threats. They have unanimously stated that the only thing our adversaries respect is strength and they need this bill passed to ensure our military is as strong and effective as possible. Sequestration and r
My Take: The American Health Care Act
The number one concern of people in the 12th District is the future of the American healthcare system. This is a primary concern of mine, and why I wanted to give you more information on what is happening now in Washington. Dear Friend, This week the leaders in the House unveiled the American Health Care Act, which would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act that became law in 2010. This begins the first phase of a three part strategy to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with the American Health Care Act to address the future of our healthcare system. The first phase will be complete when Congress passes a special piece of legislation, known as a “reconciliation” bill. Congress uses reconciliation bills because they can pass the Senate with 51 votes, unlike most other bills. Since Republicans control 52 Senate seats, this is the only way to pass the American Health Care Act into law. Passing the American Health Care Act will eliminate burdensome taxes and pen
My Take: The Bills that Matter to You
This Congress has more energy and urgency than I’ve seen during my time serving the 12th District. A large reason for this is because the American people expect results from this unified government. Congress must follow through on the promises made to fix some of the largest, most-pressing policy challenges facing our country. Dear Friend, Legislation is filed in the House of Representatives every day we are in-session. By the end of the 115th Congress, there will be thousands of bills introduced. Hearing from you helps me know what your priorities are. I recently received an email from a constituent concerned about a bill that was filed in the House. In her message, she shared with me her views on this intricate policy issue and wanted to make sure I knew how she feels about the piece of legislation. I am glad she did. With so many bills before the House, I appreciate constituents I represent taking the time to tell me what they think about them. This is especially the case for legi
