Gus Bilirakis had a letter in the Tampa Tribune on February 9th listing his committee assignments and the legislation he is introducing. Here's the link:
He also introduced a bill last week which would give tax breaks to businesses that hire reservists. Here's a link:
We need to follow up with Gus' office and find out how he feels about the president's budget which will hurts veterans in several ways. Sorry I don't have a link. I heard Congressman Jack Spratt discuss the budget on C-Span last week.
Also on February 9th, Bill Adair had a column in the St. Pete Times on the Tampa Bay Congressional delegation making their schedules public. Here is a blurb from that column followed by the link:
Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville, is opposed because of personal safety. She said she did not want to give locations of her meetings for fear that she could be a victim of a stalker.
"I'm not against sunshine, I'm for safety," said Brown-Waite. "You need to be very careful when you're in the public eye."
Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, raised the same concerns until I explained that Tester and Gillibrand posted their schedules at the end of the day, after the meetings have been held. Bilirakis said he would consider the idea.
