Cicilline campaign responds to Doherty, Gemma criticism

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 Praises Senate Confirmation of Loretta Lynch
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline, who serves on the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement today after the United States Senate voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as the 63rd Attorney General of the United States: “I am proud to congratulate Loretta Lynch on her confirmation today as our nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement official.

Cicilline Hosts Perez for Tour, "Lead on Leave" Roundtable
PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline welcomed U.S. Secretary of Labor Tom Perez to Pawtucket this afternoon for a tour of Gold International Machinery and LNA Laser Technology and a roundtable discussion on paid leave. "Today's visit was a wonderful opportunity to shine a light on how Rhode Island is leading the way on paid leave and helping ensure that more families have the opportunity to succeed in today's economy,” said Secretary Perez. “I have no doubt that federal paid leave is a when, not if question thanks to the example being set in Rhode Island and the leadership of Congressman Ciciline and the state's delegation in Washington." “Our economy is changing and evolving every day – making it even more difficult for working men and women to find the right balance between their job and family. The United States is one of only three countries today that does not offer paid maternity leave. It’s time for us to get on the right side of this issue, and make paid le
Cicilline Speaks Out Against TPP, Stands Up for American Workers
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement today: “Any agreement that promotes fast-track trade to advance the Trans-Pacific Partnership without thorough review and Congressional input is a bad deal for Rhode Island workers. Congress should play an important role in making sure trade policies are fair for American workers, businesses, intellectual property holders, and consumers. The fast-track model undercuts oversight of trade agreements and makes it more difficult to protect the interests of working families. We should be working to promote American manufacturing, implement flexible workplace policies that benefit middle-class families, and finally raise the minimum wage so everyone has an opportunity to succeed.”
