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 ...

Pay Roll Tax Cuts And Unemployment Benefits Extension

Mister Speaker with our economy still struggling and unemployment remaining unacceptably high, now is not the time to take more money out of the pockets of hard working Americans.The majority is opposing an extension of the Payroll Tax holiday enacted earlier this year that gave virtually all working Americans a much needed tax cut.The Payroll Tax holiday cut the Social Security payroll taxes of over 160 million workers.Economic uncertainty both here in the U-S and abroad, makes this a dangerous time to eliminate an important tax cut that is saving American families an average of $1,000 per ...

Washington Review, February 6, 2017
While in Washington last week, I attended a hearing, held meetings, spoke on the House Floor, voted on, and cosponsored, important legislation. Transportation Hearing Meetings House Floor Legislation Transportation Hearing On Wednesday, I attended a hearing held by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure focused on building a 21st century infrastructure for America.  My colleagues and I heard from a panel of witnesses about the challenges facing our Nation’s current transportation infrastructure and various funding proposals. Investing to build new infrastructure and maintain our existing system to meet modern obstacles, will not only create jobs and boost our economy but will improve Americans’ quality of life. Meetings On Tuesday, representatives of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of New Jersey (AICUNJ) visited my office to provide an update on their legislative priorities for the 115th Congress.  We discussed the Higher Educatio
Sires’ Statement Objecting to President Trump Politicizing the National Security Council
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires released the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to replace the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs with Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, on the National Security Council: “President Trump’s decision to add Steve Bannon as a principal member of the National Security Council (NSC) while removing the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, both of whom have played critical roles throughout multiple Administrations, is very troubling. The NSC has never been a political platform; rather, it has always consisted of individuals with the utmost expertise in national security issues. I have joined my colleagues in sending a letter to President Trump expressing our deep concern about the changes he has made to the National Security Council. I have also signed onto H.R. 804, introduced by Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), legislation barring the p
Washington Review, January 31, 2017
Last week in Washington, D.C., I attended briefings, introduced and voted on legislation, and was renamed to several Subcommittees in the 115th Congress. Legislation Subcommittees Executive Orders Briefings Legislation On Monday, I introduced H.Res.54, a bipartisan resolution recognizing Argentina’s economic reforms and reaffirming the U.S.-Argentina partnership.  Since his election in November 2015, President Mauricio Macri has been committed to rebuilding the Argentine economy, combating corruption, attracting foreign direct investment, as well as strengthening and defending human rights and freedoms both in Argentina and abroad. In addition, President Macri has continued to investigate and prosecute those who are responsible for the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) in Buenos Aires and the death of AMIA special prosecutor Alberto Nisman in January, 2015. During the 114th Congress, I traveled to Argentina to discuss security and law enforcement c
Reps. Sires, Yoho Introduce Bill to Encourage Tourism to the United States
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Representatives Albio Sires (D-NJ) and Ted Yoho (R-FL) introduced legislation that would spur small business growth, bring millions of dollars into the U.S. economy, and allow Canadian citizens to continue to conveniently and safely travel between our shared borders. The Promoting Tourism to Enhance our Economy Act will allow Canadian citizens who are at least 55 years old and own a secondary residence in the United States to visit the country for 240 days (8 months); current law only allows for 180 days (6 months). Canadian citizens admitted into the U.S. under these provisions are classified as nonresident aliens and would be ineligible for public assistance programs. As such, this legislation is a responsible way to bring additional jobs and revenue into the United States. “Increased tourism from Canada will spur job growth in towns across the United States,” said Congressman Sires. “Allowing our neighbors to spend more time to enjoy what our co
