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 ...

Chairwoman Granger: DOD Budget Request Insufficient to Repair Years of Damage 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas), chairwoman of the House Defense Appropriations panel, today said President Trump's budget request for the Pentagon falls short of what's needed to ensure military readiness and said mandatory spending caps imposed by the Budget Control Act of 2011 must be removed.  "After extensive conversations with our military leaders, I am concerned that the FY18 defense budget request is not enough to address the shortfalls and damage caused by years of underfunding," Granger said in opening remarks at the subcommittee's hearing on the Department of Defense’s fiscal year 2018 budget request. "The budget caps have exacerbated the problem and must be repealed." The president's budget proposal calls for spending $603 billion on national defense over the next decade. Granger has said that number is probably where the appropriations committee would end up given divisions over defense vs. non-defense spending. on Thursday, though, she ma
Statement on Shooting at Congressional Baseball Practice
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas, today issued the following statement on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La, a congressional staffer, and two Capitol Police officers this morning at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia: “My prayers this morning are with my colleague, Rep. Scalise, and the other victims of this senseless and cowardly act of violence,” Granger said. “I want to thank the Capitol Police who were at the park this morning for their quick response and selfless dedication. We are all Americans, and we must stand together against any attempt to divide us.”
Opening Statement by House Defense Appropriations Chairwoman Kay Granger on Defense Department Budget Request
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas, chairwoman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, delivered the following opening statement at this morning’s hearing on the Department of Defense’s fiscal year 2018 budget request: “Since becoming chair of the Defense Subcommittee, I have said the defense bill would be based on the needs of the military and the best military advice from our leaders in uniform. Unfortunately, after extensive conversations with our military leaders, I am concerned that the FY18 defense budget request is not enough to address the shortfalls and damage caused by years of underfunding. The budget caps have exacerbated the problem and must be repealed. “For many years, military leadership has said they would get the mission done no matter the level of funding they received. This is no longer possible and it is our job to make sure our military has what it needs to face the many threats to our nation. “All federal dollars are not the same.
Rep. Granger Applauds Passage of Bill to Help Persecuted Religious Minorities in Iraq and Syria
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Texas) welcomed House passage of legislation to assist religious minorities in Iraq and Syria that have been victims of genocide by Islamic State forces. The Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act of 2017 (H.R. 390) passed the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday evening by unanimous consent. The bipartisan legislation was authored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA). “The horrific slaughter of men, women, and children that has occurred in Iraq and Syria because they refused to convert to Islam is a crime against humanity,” said Rep. Granger, who is a cosponsor of the legislation. “We must make every effort to protect the tens of thousands of Christians and other minorities who remain in the region. The legislation approved by my colleagues in the House last night will help religious charities and other humanitarian groups that are providing badly needed aid to survivors and hel
