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: Combating Human Trafficking in Fort Worth and Beyond
Earlier this week I announced a $3.3 million grant for the University of North Texas Health Science Center to combat human trafficking.  Dear Friends, Earlier this week I was honored to announce that the University of North Texas Health Science Center has been awarded a $3.3 million grant from the State Department to help combat human trafficking. With this funding, U.N.T. will help establish a D.N.A. database of parents and family members of missing or abducted children in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. This database will allow us to positively identify children who have been trafficked and safely return them to their families. The U.N.T. Health Science Center already runs the premier human identification lab in the United States. As such, they are uniquely qualified to lead this effort, which will be vital in the continuing struggle to combat human trafficking from Central America. In fact, the center has already been involved in many high-profile cases including the Amanda
Granger Statement on Final Passage of the Budget
Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) today issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a final budget resolution: “The vote by the House on this budget resolution puts us one step closer to passing historic tax reform, which will overhaul our broken tax code, increase paychecks for Texans, and create jobs here in America. As Chairwoman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, it was also vital we passed a budget to lay the groundwork to rebuild our military.   “This budget delivers on my commitment to the people of the twelfth district to grow our economy and deliver real tax relief for individuals, families, and businesses. I am looking forward to working with my colleagues over the coming weeks to make taxes lower, simpler, and fairer.” 
My Take: Tax Reform that Works for Texans
Dear Friends, This week, the House passed a final budget resolution. This is a key step to advance tax reform. It’s been more than 30 years since Congress passed major tax reform. Over that time, the tax code has become bloated and full of carve-outs for special interests, and swelled to seven tax brackets and more than 70,000 pages. Texans spend too much time working through a tangled mess of rules just to file their taxes, and too many haven’t seen a meaningful pay increase in years. That is why now is the time for Congress to act. This budget begins to deliver on my commitment to the people of the twelfth district to grow our economy and deliver real tax relief for individuals, families, and businesses. As Chairwoman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, it was also vital we passed a budget to lay the groundwork to rebuild our military.  Congress and the Administration will now craft legislation that will reduce taxes and grow jobs and paychecks for all Americans.

My Take: U.S. House Funds the Children’s Health Insurance Program
This week, the House voted to fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program. November 3, 2017 Dear Friends, This week, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to fully fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), an important safety net program that provides healthcare to lower-income children. Since 1999, when CHIP was enacted with strong bipartisan support by the Texas Legislature, it has helped children in working families who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to afford private health insurance.   Nearly 400,000 Texas children – more than 10,000 in the twelfth district alone – rely on the CHIP program to provide basic healthcare services. These children would have no other affordable option for coverage otherwise. I understand how difficult it can be to afford health care and how important it is that Texas families have access to affordable and hassle-free health care. The bill that passed the House today would extend this vital program for five
