Strengthening the State of our Union

President Obama offered Congress a plan to rebuild our economy with proposals focused on manufacturing, innovation, and workforce training proposals that I and many of my colleagues support and have already been working hard to advance in Congress. This is especially necessary in my home state of Rhode Island, which lost 11,000 manufacturing jobs during the Great Recession and continues to struggle with a 10.8% unemployment rate, the third highest of any state. If the House Republican leadership is serious about working together and with the President to put America back to work, they should ...

Cicilline Unveils Bill to Strengthen Afterschool Programs
PAWTUCKET, RI – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) today unveiled new legislation to strengthen afterschool programs alongside advocates, teachers and students at Nathan Bishop Middle School in Providence. The legislation will help children and families by investing in high-quality afterschool programs and systems nationwide. Cicilline’s bill, the Community Partnerships in Education Act, would support quality afterschool programs by incentivizing and requiring partnerships between schools and communities to increase student engagement in community services that support education, athletics, and job readiness. “Afterschool programs are one of the single most effective ways to keep children safe outside of school and on track for success,” said Cicilline. “When young people succeed it leads to stronger communities and a stronger economy. The Community Partnerships in Education Act will help keep children safe and ensure children have access to enriching activities out o
Cicilline Statement on Supreme Court Decision Denying Review of Decisions Affirming Marriage Equality
PAWTUCKET, RI – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), co-chair of the Congressional Equality Caucus, today released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court decision to deny review of five circuit court cases finding laws banning same-sex marriage unconstitutional in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. The Court order leaves the decision of the  Fourth, Seventh, and Tenth circuit courts in place and each of these decisions found state same-sex marriage bans to be unconstitutional; these decisions will apply to every state within these three circuits. “Today’s Supreme Court action ensures millions of Americans will have the freedom to marry, and affirms that bigotry and discrimination are inconsistent with American values of equality and justice under the law. 19 states, including Rhode Island, have recognized marriage equality, a majority of Americans support same-sex marriage and the courts and the Obama Administration have worked expeditiously to

PAWTUCKET, RI – Congressman David Cicilline today sent a letter to the President’s newly appointed Ebola Response Coordinator, Ron Klain, urging him to take critical steps to ensure the health of the American public. As a representative of one of the largest Liberian-American communities in the country, Cicilline is concerned that the current response to cases of Ebola in the United States has been inadequate and insufficient, and he reiterates that the response to the outbreak and the protection of American citizens from the virus must be a top priority for the federal government. Cicilline called on the Administration to review its procedures and protocols for protecting against the threat of the virus, and better inform the public about actions being taken. Most importantly, Cicilline raised the concern that not enough is being done to effectively identify and isolate individuals exposed to Ebola before they travel to the United States. Cicilline urged Mr. Klain to consider any
