Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Success And Opportunity Through Quality Charter Schools Act May 9, 2014
Kathy Castor, D-FL
"For example, the Pepin Academies in my hometown of Tampa is a tuition-free public charter school for students with identified learning disabilities. They have an individualized education plan. They serve a very important population, and I believe in their mission."
Coal Residuals Reuse And Management Act October 14, 2011
Kathy Castor, D-FL
"The problem here is the GOP bill stops that effort in its tracks. The GOP bill is too liberal and too permissive. I have relayed to EPA that many actors in the field recycle coal ash material. In my hometown of Tampa, we send a lot of coal ash for the building of the new Panama Canal expansion. And it’s used in wallboard. This needs to be encouraged. We want to see the beneficial reuse industry flourish. Recycled fly ash should not be labeled as hazardous, and I think it shouldn’t even be labeled as special waste, and I encourage the EPA to take this approach. In fact, I proposed an amendment to support this approach after discussion with industry leaders, but the Republicans ruled it out of order."
Eliminating Taxpayer Financing Of Presidential Elections January 26, 2011
Kathy Castor, D-FL
"And we’re very proud in my hometown of Tampa to be the host of the 2012 Republican convention. It’s no wonder that the Republicans selected Tampa; it’s a wonderful place. We have beautiful beaches. We need the business and the jobs. So we’re going to be a very welcoming community. We do conventions very well. And we’re very happy that we’re going to play host to the Republican convention."
Charcot-Marie-Tooth Awareness Week, September 19-25 September 29, 2010
Kathy Castor, D-FL
"Seventeen states and the District of Columbia held activities this week to raise awareness of CMT. In my hometown of Tampa Bay, CMTA members distributed informational pamphlets to students at Eckerd College and to families at local post offices and libraries."
Dr. Walter L. Smith July 28, 2010
Kathy Castor, D-FL
"In 2000, Dr. Smith moved back to his hometown of Tampa and opened a local library. Named in his honor, the Dr. Walter L. Smith Library, located in a converted house just blocks from his childhood home, serves as both a learning center and haven for local children to cultivate their interests and follow their dreams toward higher education."
