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 Applauds Passage of the Major Water Infrastructure Bill that Authorizes Trinity River Vision Funding
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger released the following statement after the passage of the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 (H.R. 5303), which includes full funding authorization for the Trinity River Vision project. “The Trinity River Vision is a transformational project that will improve the quality of life and livability of Fort Worth and the surrounding communities. “I have advocated and supported the Trinity River Vision project for years, and have worked in Congress to make it a reality. We need to bring our river area up to standards to prevent flooding and prepare for development – which would create jobs and over $1 billion in economic benefits to our community. “I believe that as the Trinity River has been revitalized and preserved, so has Fort Worth. I am very pleased that, after years of hard work, full funding authorization for this critical flood control and economic development project is included in the Water Resources Development Act of 2016
My Take: The Recent Debate about the Internet
I have heard from many constituents about the U.S. government transferring oversight over aspects of the internet to a private, non-profit organization based in California called ICANN. This is a complex issue, and so I wanted to provide you with some background and context. Dear Friend, Since the internet’s creation decades ago by the U.S. government, it has seen tremendous growth and revolutionized the way we live. This incredible growth naturally caused the government to adapt how it oversaw aspects of the internet’s framework. An important part of this framework is the domain name system, which helps organize web addresses and directs traffic on the internet. The U.S. government transferred management of this system to ICANN – a California-based non-profit organization - in 1998. The government still retained oversight, but planned to completely phase out in the future. In 2014, the Administration announced its intention to end the government’s oversight responsibilities an
My Take: A Strong National Defense for the United States and our Allies
When I got to Congress, I said that our nation’s defense would be my focus. I’ve served on the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee for 10 years, rising through the ranks to become vice chairwoman. I’ve studied these issues and know how America’s diplomacy and defense work together to keep us safe. Dear Friend, This week, I was invited to attend the Jewish Institute for National Security of America’s (JINSA) 40th Anniversary Awards Dinner and humbled to receive the 2016 Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson Distinguished Service Award for my leadership on military and national security issues. JINSA was established in 1976 to promote a strong U.S. military and robust national security for the U.S. and our allies. Their remarkable work makes a profound impact on our national security, and this was demonstrated by the over 500 policymakers, military leaders and diplomats in attendance that evening.  Named after the late-Senator from the state of Washington who tirelessly advocated
Granger joins Presidential delegation to Jerusalem to attend funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres
Congresswoman Kay Granger was invited to join the Presidential delegation as the President and his guests travel to Jerusalem for the funeral service of former President of Israel, Shimon Peres. Congresswoman Granger released the following statement on her way to the funeral service, which will be held Friday. “I first met Shimon Peres when he was Prime Minister of Israel and I was Mayor of Fort Worth, and I count myself fortunate to have met, known and worked with him in his role as the President of Israel. I last met with Peres when I had the honor to introduce him at the Tarrant County College Foundation Lunch in Fort Worth in March of 2015. “He lived a long life of service and distinction, marked by such recognition as the Nobel Peace Prize, Congressional Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of Freedom. His strides for world peace were unparalleled; his efforts, tireless. “The world mourns the loss of one of the great statesmen of our time.”
