Following Representative Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) resignation, Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Henry Waxman (D-CA) has reported that Florida Democrat Kathy Castor is set to take the vacated committee seat. Castor served on the panel in the last Congress, but lost her seat when Republicans took over the House following the 2010 midterm elections. While only in her third term, Castor has already proven herself to be a supporter of children’s access to quality, affordable healthcare. In the 111th Congress, she sponsored legislation to improve children’s access to health care coverage under the Medicaid Program and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). Advocates have much to be optimistic about following this recent development.
