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 Statement on FHWA Decision Regarding The Outpost
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement after the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) ruled that the Outpost, a food vendor in the Blackstone River Park Visitor Center, is not in compliance with federal regulations: “This decision is outrageous and makes absolutely no sense.” “Mike Lafond is a veteran and a Cumberland firefighter. He invested his own savings to become a small business owner. He relied upon agreements and prior actions of the FHWA in opening his business, and FHWA failed to inform him of any potential compliance issues until after he had opened The Outpost.” “He did everything right. And now he’s being penalized.” “Government should be working to help small business owners get ahead rather than creating problems for them. This decision is incredibly unfair and completely wrong.” On behalf of Mr. Lafond, Congressman Cicilline submitted the attached letter to the FHWA in February.
