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 ...

The letter, to object to the proposal to slow first-class service and close processing centers, was lead by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN). “The Post Office plays a vital role in our community, providing affordable and reliable service that many citizens and businesses depend on” said Congressman Sires. “Reducing service will disproportionately affect millions of Americans and cut thousands of jobs.” On ...

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 ...

Sires and Ros-Lehtinen Bill to Support Nicaraguan Human Rights Unanimously Passes the House
(Washington, DC) – Rep. Albio Sires (D-NJ), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere made the following statement today after H.R. 1918, the Nicaraguan Investment Conditionality Act (NICA) of 2017, unanimously passed the House of Representatives: “I would like to thank my good friend from Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a tireless advocate for those fighting for democracy around the world for her commitment to the Nicaraguan people. Daniel Ortega and his family continue to get rich while the Nicaraguan people suffer. Being a corrupt democracy in name only cannot go on without consequences. This bill ensures that Ortega and his cronies can’t continue to line their pockets with cash and steal money meant for the hardworking Nicaraguan people. I applaud my colleagues in the House for unanimously passing this legislation and look forward to working with my Senate colleagues to help the NICA Act get signed into law.”
Congressman Sires Supports Common Sense Gun Control Legislation
(Washington, D.C.) – This week, in the wake of the senseless tragedy in Las Vegas that claimed dozens of lives, Congressman Sires joined his colleagues to introduce H.R. 3962, the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act, led by Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) and H.R. 3947, the Automatic Gunfire Prevention Act, led by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI). “Like many Americans across the country, I continue to be deeply troubled by the proliferation of gun violence and mass shootings in our country. We cannot afford to sit in silence as the gun control epidemic plaguing our country continues to grow” stated Rep. Sires.  The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act would place limits on online ammunition sales by requiring federally licensed ammunition dealers to verify the identity of individuals who arrange sales over the internet.  It would also require vendors to report sales of over 1,000 rounds within five consecutive days to the U.S. Attorney General if the purchaser is not a licensed dealer.
Congressman Sires Opposes the Republican Budget
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires voted against the House Republican budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 because it includes massive tax cuts for the wealthy while slashing vital services for the American people. “I am extremely disappointed that my Republican colleagues have prioritized tax cuts for the wealthiest individuals and corporations over the needs of American families” stated Rep. Sires. “This partisan budget is a vehicle for the Ryan-McConnell Tax Plan to pass in the Senate through reconciliation – requiring only 51votes instead of 60.  If that tax plan were to pass, it would provide massive tax cuts to the wealthy while increasing base rates for middle-class families and is predicted to increase the deficit by $2.4 trillion over 10 years.” The Republican budget increases FY 2018 defense discretionary spending and provides funding to start constructing an expensive and ineffectual border wall.  It also slashes nondefense discretionary spending for
Washington Review, October 6, 2017
While in Washington this week, I cosponsored several pieces of legislation that would make it harder for guns to be converted, managed two bills on the House Floor, and I pressed a panel at the Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee Hearing on the urgent need for investment in transportation infrastructure. I also met with members of the New Jersey Education Association to discuss education priorities. Las Vegas Legislation on the House Floor Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee Hearing NJEA Meeting Las Vegas On Sunday night, the Nation witnessed the largest mass shooting in recent U.S. history which took the lives of 58 people and left over 500 others injured in Las Vegas. I am saddened and troubled that another act of senseless violence has stripped innocent civilians of their lives too soon, and continue to offer my sincerest condolences to the victims and their families.  Unfortunately, this act is yet another solemn reminder of the increasing frequency and
