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 ...

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.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DEMOCRATS OPPOSE SESSIONS PICK
  Washington, DC – This morning, President-elect Donald Trump announced that U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) would be his choice for Attorney General.  We need an Attorney General who represents the American people’s best interests by fighting to strengthen voting rights, prevent violence against women, and work to reform our broken immigration system, among other priorities. Senator Sessions was denied a federal judgeship in 1986 following a history of racially-charged comments and disturbing attitudes towards minority groups; and his record since only furthers cause for concern. The Democratic Members of the House Committee on the Judiciary issued the following joint statement in response: “The Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, charged with the administration of the criminal justice system and the enforcement of our civil rights.  We have grave concerns with Senator Sessions’ potential nomination for this post and urge President-

RI to Receive $6 Million for Early Education
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline, announced today that Rhode Island preschool programs will receive $6,043,131 from the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services through the Preschool Development Grant Program. Rhode Island is one of 18 states awarded funds to expand access to preschool for children from low- to moderate-income families. “Early childhood education programs benefit families, communities, and our economy.  We want every child to have a chance to start off strong and achieve their full potential.  I am proud to have helped deliver these funds.  Because we stood firm and staved off the elimination of funding for the Preschool Development Grant, more kids are going to get an opportunity to learn,” said Senator Jack Reed, a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee who helped successfully provide $250 million to continue support for Preschool Development
Cicilline Leads 169 Reps Asking President-Elect Trump to Reverse Bannon Appointment
WASHINGTON – 169 members of the U.S. House, led by Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), today sent a letter asking President-elect Donald Trump to rescind alt-right leader Steve Bannon’s appointment as White House Chief Strategist. Although Republican members of the House were invited to sign Cicilline’s letter, none did so. “Bigotry, anti-Semitism, and xenophobia should have no place in our society, and they certainly have no place in the White House. Whether intentional or not, the appointment of Mr. Bannon sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be,” said Cicilline, a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “I am grateful that so many of my colleagues joined me in this request today. I hope that the President-elect will consider our concerns as he prepares to enter office.” The full text and a list of signers is embedded below.
