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 ...

My Take: Listening to Those Who Serve
The House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee oversees more than 50 percent of discretionary funding. As Chairwoman of this Subcommittee, I am committed to rebuilding our military to keep the United States and our allies safe. Dear Friend, This week I chaired the first two hearings of the Defense Subcommittee in the 115th Congress. With the challenges to our military readiness and the complex and diverse threats facing our country, I appreciate the generals who came to the Capitol this week to testify in front of the Subcommittee about their commands. Subcommittee hearings provide opportunities for Members to hear from experts who go in-depth on specific topics. In the coming weeks, there will be a number of hearings in order to help create a Fiscal Year 2018 Defense Appropriations bill that provides for our common defense and gives the men and women in uniform the training and equipment they need to do their jobs and return home safely. Since becoming Chairwoman, I have been listening
My Take: Important Steps to Help Veterans
I often hear from veterans in the 12th District about their dealings with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – both good and bad. That is why I am proud to support legislation in the House which takes important steps to help our veterans. Dear Friend, While there are many hardworking and dedicated employees at the VA, including many veterans themselves, the current system makes it too hard to hold poor-performing employees accountable. The result is inadequate services for veterans and difficulty in retaining talented employees. To address this, I supported the VA Accountability First Act, which allows the VA to fire, demote or suspend employees for poor performance or misconduct. Where similar legislation focused only on holding VA executives accountable, this legislation applies to all VA employees. In addition, I voted to empower the Secretary of the VA to better hire and retain physicians and other employees to make sure the VA can attract and keep the best talent to provide
My Take: Advocating on Behalf of Constituents
Advocating on behalf of constituents is one of the most important roles of a Congressional office. This week I want to share some of what my district office does to help constituents in their dealings with the federal government. Dear Friend, Federal agencies affect all of us on a daily basis. While we may have a satisfactory experience with the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Veterans Affairs or other agencies, sometimes we have difficulty getting what we need accomplished. When constituents are having trouble navigating the bureaucratic maze or getting an answer they need, my office is here to help. A recent example of the work we do involves a constituent’s son who joined the Navy and suffered a serious medical emergency during training. Due to paperwork delays and technicalities, her son was unable to get the special treatment the military doctors recommended for his recovery. When my office was contacted about this case
Granger Statement on the Targeted Military Strike in Syria
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12), Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, released the following statement after the United States conducted a targeted military strike in Syria. “Tonight, the White House made me aware that the United States would no longer stand idly by as President Assad slaughters his own people. I cannot more strongly applaud President Trump's decisive actions against the Government of Syria. For years we have watched as the Syrian people endured unimaginable atrocities at the hand of their own government. The world cannot allow this type of evil to go unchecked. Tonight the United States has shown we are ready to lead the fight.”
