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 Revamps Senior Staff by Adding Retired Navy Captain as Chief of Staff
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX), Chair of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, today announced the hiring of a retired Navy Captain with years of experience at the Pentagon as her new Chief of Staff. “Captain Eric Wiese brings more than 20 years of leadership as a Navy officer including serving as the Deputy Director of the Navy Appropriations Liaison Office at the Pentagon,” Granger said. “He has vast experience in forming legislative strategy and in appropriations work. He will be invaluable to my work as we look to increase our investment in defense after years of decline during the Obama administration.” Prior to serving as Deputy Director of the Navy Appropriations Liaison Office, Captain Wiese served as Commodore of the Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing ELEVEN in Jacksonville, Florida.  He has also served as an action officer at the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon where he helped create the annual blueprint for worldwide deployment of U.S. mili
Granger, Zeldin Introduce Legislation to Prohibit Taxpayer Dollars to the United Nations Until Anti-Israel Resolution is Repealed
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX) and Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) today introduced the Safeguard Israel Act. Last month, the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution that unfairly targeted our longtime U.S. ally Israel and undermined direct peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. The Safeguard Israel Act will cut off funding to the United Nations until the President certifies to Congress that United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 has been repealed. “I meant it when I said that the United States should seriously reexamine our financial support of the United Nations,” Congresswoman Granger said. “The recent one-sided, anti-Israel resolution that passed the U.N. Security Council was only the latest example of the U.N.’s warped priorities and hostility toward our friend and democratic ally. I am proud to introduce this legislation with Congressman Zeldin which shows the American people, Israel and our allies around the world
Reexamining our Financial Support of the United Nations
The United States funds 22 percent of the United Nations regular budget and is the largest contributor of any member state. The United States must ensure that the United Nations does not become a venue to target our allies and undermine our national security.   Dear Friend, The United Nations Security Council recently passed a resolution that unfairly targeted Israel and undermined direct peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. In addition, this resolution claims that the Old City of Jerusalem and Judaism’s holiest site are “occupied Palestinian territory,” and paves the way for further boycott, divestment and sanction campaigns targeting Israel. After the resolution passed, I said that the United States should seriously reexamine our financial support of the U.N. and I meant it. That is why I was proud to introduce legislation this week that shows the American people, Israel and our allies around the world that we stand with them against attempts to undermine an
My Take: Reining in Unelected and Unaccountable Bureaucrats
One of the top priorities of House Republicans this year is cutting red tape in order to help promote a healthy economy that benefits all Americans. Here is another way we’re delivering on that priority. Dear Friend, New federal regulations must be carefully vetted to make sure they don’t hurt jobs and job creators. This is especially the case for any major regulations that would have a significant economic impact. That is why I was pleased to support the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act when it passed the House last month. The REINS Act requires Congress to approve any new major regulations proposed by unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats. This way, the people’s representatives in Congress can prevent federal agencies from implementing harmful and expensive new regulations that hurt economic growth and cost people jobs. While some regulations are needed, the House will continue to take steps to ensure that the burdensome federal regulatory system
