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, Pallone Lead Letter Urging Attorney General Sessions to Uphold LGBT Worker Protections
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) and U.S. Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) led a bicameral letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions regarding the Department of Justice’s decision to file an amicus brief in the Zarda v. Altitude Express case. Donald Zarda, a skydiver, filed a lawsuit in September 2010 against his former employer, Altitude Express, Inc, alleging that the company violated the Civil Rights Act by discriminating against him because of his sexual orientation. On Wednesday, July 26, the Justice Department filed an amicus brief arguing that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not protect LGBT individuals, counter to court precedent and the interpretation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the federal entity responsible for ensuring equality in the workplace. The brief is also inconsistent with a significant body of caselaw established by the First, Sixth, Ninth, and eleventh circuit courts of appeal. Cicilline, Pallone, a

Cicilline Statement on North Korea
PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement today: “We cannot permit the North Korean regime to have the ability to threaten our country with a nuclear weapon. The United States must work with China and our South Korean and Japanese allies to make clear to Kim Jong-Un that there will be consequences if he continues down this path.” “This is not a time for escalating rhetoric that threatens to bring the world to the brink of war. It is critical that the Trump administration work carefully, and in close consultation with Congress, to craft a diplomatic solution that results in North Korea giving up their missile program and nuclear weapons for good.”
