Cicilline campaign responds to Doherty, Gemma criticism

Rep. David N. Cicilline has responded to criticism that his stewardship of Providence's finances as mayor for eight years contributed to the conditions that led current Mayor Angel Taveras to warn of possible bankruptcy Thursday. Cicilline's Republican opponent in the 1st District, Brendan Doherty -- and his probable primary challenger, Democrat Anthony Gemma -- both blamed Cicilline Thursday following Taveras' announcement. Cicilline's campaign spokeswoman, Nicole Kayner, responded in an e-mail ... Source: providencejournal.com

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

RI Wins $13.1M Federal TIGER Grant for Pawtucket, Central Falls Rail Station
PAWTUCKET, RI – In an effort to improve the state’s transportation network and transform sections of Pawtucket and Central Falls, Rhode Island’s Congressional delegation today announced a $13.1 million federal boost for building a new commuter rail station long-sought by Pawtucket and Central Falls.  The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will work with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to provide service at the station, which will provide riders with a more convenient alternative option while also offering a connection to Wickford Junction, T.F. Green Airport, Providence, as well as other stops all the way up to Boston’s South Station. RIDOT is being awarded a $13.1 million federal grant for the project through the federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant program.  The TIGER grant program is designed to spur tough-to-finance projects that have a significant impact on a region or metropolitan area.  Wit
Cicilline Asks President to Cut Off Trump's Access to Classified Intel
PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today requested that, in the interest of protecting America’s national security, President Obama withhold classified materials and briefings from Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for President. “The Republican nominee’s call for hostile foreign action represents a step beyond mere partisan politics and represents a threat to the republic itself.  It suggests that he is unfit to receive sensitive intelligence, and may willingly compromise our national security if he is permitted to do so,” wrote Cicilline. “With this in mind, I respectfully ask that you withhold the intelligence briefing to Mr. Trump in the interests of national security.” Since 1952, Democratic and Republican presidential candidates have traditionally received classified national security briefings after securing their party’s nomination. But in recent weeks, Trump’s volatile behavior and murk

PAWTUCKET – As Rhode Island families get ready for the start of the 2016-2017 school year, U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) is encouraging students who reside or attend school in the First Congressional District to take part in the 2016 Congressional App Challenge by designing an app for mobile, tablet, or personal computers on a platform of their choice. “I’m very excited that my office is providing young people with an opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and learn more about coding and technology,” said Cicilline. “From Uber to Venmo to Amazon Kindle, apps are becoming more and more prominent not only in our daily lives but in our local and national economy as well. I look forward to reviewing the apps created by students later this year.” Established in 2013, the Congressional App Challenge is a nationwide event open to all students who have not yet graduated high school. The competition encourages students to get involved in the Science, Technology, En
RI to Receive $200K to Fight Zika Virus
WARWICK, R.I.  – U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and U.S. Representatives Jim Langevin and David Cicilline today announced that Rhode Island will receive $200,000 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to enhance efforts to rapidly detect microcephaly and other adverse birth outcomes caused by Zika virus infection. The funding will be administered through the Rhode Island Birth Defects Program at the Rhode Island Department of Health. In February, President Obama submitted to Congress a $1.9 billion emergency supplemental funding request. Despite multiple attempts by Democrats to reach a bipartisan agreement, Republican leaders chose to adjourn for the summer recess without passing a measure to fund additional emergency response efforts. Since that time, the number of countries reporting cases of Zika has grown from 26 to 55, according to the World Health Organization. There have been more than 1,600 confirmed Zika cases in the United States linked to
