WASHINGTON – Florida will have a seat on the congressional conference committee for the $1.5 trillion tax cut package – but it's a Democratic one.

Rep. Kathy Castor of Tampa was named Monday by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Writing on Twitter, Castor said: "I will stand up for hardworking Americans, our kids & grandkids and fight this GOP monstrosity! It's an unconscionable giveaway to big corporations & super rich that puts America further in debt, raises health costs

No Florida Republican House  members made the cut.
