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


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. What sort of examination of the California start-up company’s finances did the government do before taking such a big risk?According to a news release we received the other ...

Cicilline Statement on Devin Nunes’s Recusal
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman and Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-Chair David N. Cicilline (D-RI), who co-led a letter yesterday requesting House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation, issued the following statement today: “Devin Nunes made the right decision. Over the last few weeks, his words and his actions have undermined this investigation and raised serious doubts about whether he could impartially lead this investigation.” “Russia undermined our election last year. They hacked the Democratic National Committee and used the documents they stole to boost Donald Trump’s campaign. That’s not my opinion – it’s a fact upon which 17 American intelligence agencies agree.” “Nothing is more fundamental to our democracy than the integrity of our elections. The American people deserve to know whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian intelligence agents to undermine our democracy
Whitehouse and Cicilline Introduce Bill to End Tax Incentive for Offshoring Jobs
Washington, DC – Today Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) introduced a bill to keep jobs in America.  Their Offshoring Prevention Act would eliminate a tax break for companies that send jobs overseas, level the playing field for U.S. manufacturers, and reduce the budget deficit by billions of dollars. “When they’re given the chance to compete on a level playing field, Rhode Island workers will do their jobs better than any competitors.  It’s long past time to close tax loopholes that reward companies for shipping American jobs overseas,” said Cicilline, who serves in the House Democratic Leadership as Co-Chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee. “Let’s pass this bill into law and give Rhode Island workers a chance to get ahead.” “Companies shouldn’t receive a tax benefit for sending jobs overseas and putting Rhode Island manufacturers at a disadvantage,” said Whitehouse, who first introduced the Offshoring
Cicilline Fighting for New Federal Funding to Address Opiate Crisis
WASHINGTON - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), who serves on the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force, is leading the effort in Congress to expand the use of Naloxone by law enforcement agencies. “In 2015, nearly two-thirds of drug overdose deaths —or 33,091 of 52,404 deaths—involved prescription and synthetic opioids like Vicodin, OxyContin, heroin and fentanyl,” Cicilline wrote in a letter to the House Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies. “Equipping those who are likely to witness an overdose with Naloxone is critical to help saving lives, and, law enforcement officers are often one of the first people on the scene during an emergency.” According to the Rhode Island Department of Health, at least 31 Rhode Islanders have died of a drug overdose so far in 2017. Last year, 336 Rhode Islanders died of overdoses. When administered early, the antidote Naloxone can reverse the effects of an opiate overdose. The full te
Cicilline Statement on U.S. Military Action in Syria
WASHINGTON - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), who serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement today: "Bashar al-Assad is a monster. He is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Syrians. His regime has turned millions more into refugees over the course of the Syrian civil war." "Earlier this week, Assad cruelly deployed chemical weapons against civilians in his own country, including innocent children. The civilized world cannot tolerate a tyrant who does this to his own people. Assad cannot be allowed to continue in power." "Last night, President Trump launched a cruise missile strike against the Syrian military. The President must now make clear to Congress the legal justification for these strikes, as well as a comprehensive strategy for resolving the conflict in Syria, promoting human rights, and defeating ISIS." "If the President intends to escalate our military involvement further, then Congress has a respon
