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 15th Anniversary of September 11th
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: “Fifteen years ago, our country and the core values that define us as Americans came under attack. At the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania, we witnessed unspeakable acts of evil that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 of our citizens. The victims were our friends and neighbors, moms and dads, Rhode Islanders and Americans who were going about their daily lives. We honor their memories today, and we continue to pray for the comfort of the families and loved ones they left behind.” “Although we saw the worst examples of humanity’s capacity for evil that day, we also observed some of the finest examples of courage and selflessness that have always defined our nation. The first responders at Ground Zero, the ordinary citizens who donated blood, and the brave men and women who fought back aboard Flight 9

Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement today after President Obama signed an historic Memorandum of Understanding with the Israeli government to provide $38 billion in security aid over ten years:   “I am delighted that President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu have reached an agreement that will ensure critical funding for Israel’s military and defense systems, including $500 million each year in missile defense funding to ensure the safety of Israeli civilians.

U.S. House Passes Cicilline’s BABIES Act
WASHINGTON – The United States House of Representatives today passed U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline’s Bathrooms Accessible for BABIES in Every Situation (BABIES) Act (H.R. 5147). Cicilline’s proposal, which is co-sponsored by 27 Democrats and one Republican, requires that all publicly-accessible, federal buildings be equipped with baby-changing facilities in both male and female restrooms. “Federal buildings belong to the American people and they should be welcoming and accommodating to all. Government needs to do more to ensure that public buildings are family-friendly. No mom or dad should ever have to worry about finding a safe, sanitary place to change their baby – least of all in a federal building that’s paid for by taxpayers,” said Cicilline. “The BABIES Act is a commonsense proposal that makes government buildings more welcoming for families and helps promote good public health. I’m pleased that the House passed this bipartisan bill today, and I look forw
