Congressman Sires Supports Creation of Job Corps Program

Congressman Sires cosponsored H.R. 2914, the Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act. This legislation was introduced by Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and would create jobs through the establishment of job corps programs. “This legislation creates jobs by funding job corps programs,” said Congressman Sires. “While this concept may be simple, its impact would be tremendous, and nationally, over 2.2 million jobs could be created.” The Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act would create several job corps programs. Specifically, the School ...

Washington Review, September 9, 2016
While in Washington this week I attended a House Committee on Foreign Affairs hearing and held several meetings. Harbor Deepening Project Labor Foreign Affairs Anniversary of 9/11 Harbor Deepening Project Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at a ceremony hosted by the Army Corps of Engineers and the Port Authority marking the completion of the Port of New York and New Jersey, 50-Foot Harbor Deepening Project.  The Port is the largest port on the East Coast and a critical transportation hub that provides over 270,000 jobs.  While the Port handled 3.7 million containers of cargo valued at $208 billion in 2015, its channels could not previously accommodate the large Post-Panamax container ships. The Harbor Deepening project is the last part of a dredging program that will increase the channel capacities and allow the Port to maintain its competitiveness, improve its transportation efficiency, and benefit the regional economy.  Labor This week, I met the UNITE HERE workers

The Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER)grant program is administered by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). “This federal funding will have a big impact on North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue and the five municipalities the department protects,” said Rep.
