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

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 ...

No More Silence: A Public Sit-In to Reduce Gun Violence
Following their participation in an unprecedented 26-hour sit‐in on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI‐1) and Congressman Jim Langevin (RI‐2) are inviting members of the public to join them on Wednesday, June 29th, for a public sit‐in to reduce gun violence at the Providence Public Safety Complex at 3:00 PM.

Delegation Cheers NOAA Funding to Help Rhode Island Fishermen
Providence, RI – Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline welcomed the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) announcement that it will be able to cover a significant portion of Northeast groundfish fishermen’s at-sea monitoring (ASM) costs for this fishing season—relieving a significant financial burden for the Rhode Island groundfish industry.  Citing a federal court finding, NOAA shifted the cost of at-sea monitoring to fishermen at the beginning of this fishing year, requiring fishermen to pay the full cost of on-board observers.  NOAA has reversed course and identified around $900,000 in its budget that could be applied to help cover most of these costs while adhering to the court’s requirements.  NOAA officials estimate the funding will pay for roughly 85 percent of the at-sea monitoring costs that would otherwise come out of fishermen’s pockets. “This is good news for fishermen as we continue t
Members of Congress Urge Court to Recognize Protections for LGBT Americans
WASHINGTON – 127 Members of Congress, led by Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), as well as Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), have filed an amicus brief in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Christiansen v. Omnicom Group, Inc., arguing that workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity is already prohibited under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 since these types of discrimination are inherently linked to sex discrimination. Discrimination on the basis of sex is banned under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.   “Different interpretations of Title VII have led to uncertainty in the workplace and left LGBT Americans inconsistently protected from workplace harassment and discrimination, despite applicable federal law,” wrote the Representatives and Senators. “We firmly believe that Title VII’s sex discrimination provision already prohibits discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation and gender identity
RI Delegation Announces $500K for Providence-Cranston Partnership to Reduce Recidivism
Providence, RI – Rhode Island’s federal delegation today announced a $499,672 federal grant to support a new partnership between the cities of Providence and Cranston and the correctional system to connect transitioning offenders with services to help them find employment and re-enter the community. “I am pleased that Providence and Cranston are taking the lead and working with the federal government to create new opportunities for people who have served their time and need help getting a new job and a fresh start.  The goal of this federal funding is to save taxpayer money in the long run by reducing recidivism and promoting successful reintegration of formerly incarcerated individuals,” said Senator Jack Reed. “Those who have paid their debt to society should have an opportunity to successfully transition to the workforce,” said Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, an author of the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act, which would allow qualifying inmates to earn reduced senten
