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 Statement on New Muslim Ban Ruling
WASHINGTON - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after the Ninth Circuit ruled unanimously against President Trump's Muslim Ban: “Once again, a federal court has struck down President Trump's Muslim Ban. Today's ruling confirms that the Trump administration intended for this policy to discriminate against Muslims. This policy was never designed to make us safer - in fact, it would make us less safe. And once again, a court has ruled the Muslim Ban unconstitutional.” “The President has wasted substantial taxpayer resources defending his Muslim Ban in court. It's time for him to let this go and get back to work for America's working families. He can start by proposing a real jobs bill, an infrastructure plan that actually invests in our communities, and a plan to make higher education affordable.”

There is no question that their bravery saved the lives of my colleagues, their staff, and others who were at the ballpark. I am thankful for their service, and I will continue to pray for the full and speedy recovery of the victims in Alexandria.”
RI Receives $3.7 Million in AmeriCorps Grants to Strengthen Local Communities
PROVIDENCE, RI – Today, at the Providence Children’s Museum, U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline joined with AmeriCorps members and beneficiaries and students to announce over $3.7 million in federal AmeriCorps funding for Serve Rhode Island and several local service-oriented non-profits.  The delegation also warned that President Trump’s efforts to eliminate national service programs - including AmeriCorps – in his 2018 budget would have a negative impact on Rhode Island and would be felt deeply in schools across the country.  AmeriCorps programs help meet critical needs and serve as a pathway for talented, bright young adults to gain hands-on experience and pay for college. Rhode Island grantees will receive federal funding to respond to local needs across the state.  The federal investment will support AmeriCorps members across Rhode Island as they provide services to youth and families in need and help
Cicilline, Durbin Reintroduce Bill to Ban Child Labor on Tobacco Farms
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) and U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today introduced legislation to protect child workers from the dangers of exposure to tobacco plants, including nicotine poisoning. The Children Don’t Belong on Tobacco Farms Act amends the Fair Labor Standards Act to prohibit children under the age of 18 from coming into direct contact with tobacco plants or dried tobacco leaves. Cicilline and Durbin introduced similar legislation last Congress. “In 2017, there is no reason for children to be working on tobacco farms. We already know the dangers of exposure to tobacco and nicotine. It’s time we do something about it,” said Cicilline. “I’m proud to be introducing this bill with Senator Durbin today. I know that we will both continue to stand up against this harmful practice.” “We have known for decades that tobacco companies have no qualms marketing their deadly products to minors, but Big Tobacco’s willingness to exploit chi
