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 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 ...

Congresswoman Granger Honored by Marine Corps at Sunset Parade
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Texas) was honored yesterday at a Sunset Parade at the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. Granger, who serves as chairwoman of the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee, was recognized Tuesday evening at the traditional summer parade for her sustained commitment to America’s servicemen and women.   “During my time in Congress, I have always sought to serve in positions where I could help the military and strengthen our national security,” said Granger, who has served in the House since 1997. “We live in a dangerous world, and we depend on the Marines Corps and all of our service members to keep us safe and maintain stability around the globe. Now is the time to invest in the modernization of our military to ensure it is stronger than ever.” Deputy Commandant for Aviation Lt. Gen. Steve Rudder said Granger is known for being “hard-working, honest, and fair” and thanked her for her support of the military
Congresswoman Granger Voices Support for Appropriations Language on Cuba
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Texas) on Wednesday spoke in favor of language in the fiscal year 2018 State and Foreign Operations Appropriations bill prohibiting the State Department from spending funds to establish a new U.S. embassy in Cuba. Granger, who chairs the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and previously served as chairwoman of the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee, defended the language because of Cuba’s continued human rights abuses. The language blocks the State Department from spending funds to open a new embassy in Cuba or to aid that country from opening an embassy in the United States. At the markup, Granger spoke about her meetings with Cuban refugees she met during a fact-finding mission to Costa Rica after President Obama eased restrictions on Cuba beginning in December 2014.  “I know the hopes that you would have for Cuba (after the easing of sanctions), but that’s not what I heard,” Granger said of her talks with Cuban refug

Granger was the guest of honor at the annual American Cowboy Gala held at the historic Stockyards in appreciation for her dedication to making Fort Worth a better place to live and work. “This is a great honor,” Granger said. “There is a lot of things that make Fort Worth a wonderful place to live, but it’s our connection to our cowboy heritage that truly makes our community unique – and there’s no stronger example of that link than the Stockyards.” The evening included a video tribute to Granger and her commitment to Fort Worth. Each year the American Cowboy Gala is held in conjunction with the National Day of the American Cowboy as a fundraiser for the non-profits that support the Fort Worth Herd and Cowtown Coliseum.
