Sue's passion...

While she's been MIA at numerous events in her district, Sue has managed to carve out some time from her busy schedule to speak to an insurance industry group in Orlando according to this article. But what's particularly interesting about the article is all of the stuff Sue is given credit for doing -- from reducing taxes, to improving veteran's benefits to authoring the corporate fraud Sarbanes-Oxley bill. Of course, there's plenty of people here in the 19th who would quibble with her record, including many veterans who find her efforts lukewarm and lacking and many homeowners who have seen their local and school taxes shoot up sharply due to unfunded federal mandates passed by Sue and her DC buddies. And then there's the fact that the bill isn't called the Sarbanes-Oxley-Kelly bill.

Kelly was in Orlando to talk up the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which is set to expire at the end of the year. Insurance agents are eager to see it renewed, primarily because it means millions of dollars in premiums. "Every single person in every single state should contact their officials to make sure TRIA is renewed," Kelly urged. "You are instrumental in making sure enough interest is generated about this and make sure they understand how they will be affected if it isn't passed - take my passion into your own hearts and fight for TRIA!"

Of course, it's good to see that Sue's passionate about something.
