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 is respon. for the fed. loan guarantee to Solyndra

There’s been a lot of finger-pointing lately in Washington over the Obama administration’s 2009 decision to give a $535-million federal loan guarantee to Solyndra, a now-defunct solar power manufacturer.The Republican-controlled House has launched an investigation into how the Department of Energy could guarantee such a large loan to a company that would file for bankruptcy only two and a half years later. What sort of examination of the California start-up company’s finances did the government do before taking such a big risk?According to a news release we received the other ...

Dems to Ryan: No Break Without Action on Gun Violence
WASHINGTON – Led by the four organizers of last June’s sit-in, as well as the chair and vice-chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, 118 members of the U.S. House of Representatives today wrote to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, requesting that they keep the House in session until Congress finally takes action on America’s epidemic of gun violence. “Within a few hours the Republican majority is preparing to adjourn for a six week recess without taking any action on gun safety legislation.  When we return to session on November 14th, we will likely be faced with the sad reality that thousands of Americans will have lost their lives to gun violence while members of this body were campaigning for re-election,” the members wrote. “We strongly urge you to cancel the upcoming recess to debate and vote on responsible gun safety legislation to help save American lives.”   Last June, Democrats organized a 26-hour
Federal Spending Bill Passed by Congress Includes Cicilline Request for Full Funding of Veterans Crisis Line
WASHINGTON – Tonight, the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution to fund the federal government through December 9th. The legislation, which now heads to President Obama’s desk, includes U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline’s (D-RI) request for full federal funding to staff the Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all of Fiscal Year 2017. “I’m pleased that, tonight, Congress provided full funding to ensure that veterans can always get critical mental health services through the Veterans Crisis Line,” said Cicilline. “Like all Americans, I was outraged when I learned that, in recent years, the Veterans Crisis Line had failed to provide veterans with the first-rate care they have earned. This federal funding honors the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform, and it will help ensure that no veteran is ever again forced to go without critical mental health services.” Under the legislation passed tonight,
President Obama Signs Cicilline's BABIES ACT into Law
PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), who introduced the bipartisan BABIES Act earlier this year to make federal buildings more family-friendly by expanding access to baby-changing stations, issued the following statement after President Obama signed the proposal into law today: "Federal buildings are paid for by taxpayers and it's important to ensure that they are as open, as accessible, and as family-friendly as possible. With this new law now in effect, Social Security offices, Post Office buildings, and courthouses will be more accommodating for working moms and dads in Rhode Island and across the country." "I thank President Obama for moving swiftly to sign this commonsense proposal into law, and I thank my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in Congress for coming together to get the job done. This is how government should work to make commonsense reforms that make life easier for the people we serve."
Cicilline Introduces Bipartisan SEEED Commission Act to Support Social Enterprise Community
WASHINGTON – U.S. Reps. David N. Cicilline (RI-1) and Tom MacArthur (NJ-3), a co-chair of the Congressional Social Investment Taskforce, today announced the introduction of the bipartisan Social Enterprise Ecosystem and Economic Development (SEEED) Commission Act. If enacted, the SEEED Commission Act would help legislators identify how to support the social enterprise “ecosystem” in our country. “Throughout the United States, social entrepreneurship has gained increasing recognition. It is a movement and an economic phenomenon that is helping to power our economy and improve our communities,” said Cicilline.  “Local communities often face difficult and sometimes overwhelming challenges. But our social entrepreneurs are transforming our society in ways traditional systems and programs of government cannot, which makes the imperative for our government and policymakers to recognize and support these social enterprises all the more critical.” “Social enterprises and the
