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 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 Joins Bipartisan Group of Lawmakers to Introduce Bill to Renew Unemployment Insurance
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) along with U.S. Representatives Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) and Dan Kildee (D-MI) introduced a bipartisan bill to extend unemployment insurance for the long-term unemployed.   The House bill is identical to the bipartisan Senate measure introduced by Senators Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dean Heller (R-NV) earlier this week.   The legislation allows eligible job seekers who were cut-off from emergency unemployment compensation to pick up where they were left off when their benefits were abruptly cut off on December 28, 2013. "This bipartisan House bill could represent a potential breakthrough in an effort to extend unemployment benefits for millions of Americans.  This is the first time since benefits expired in December 2013 that House Republicans have joined Democrats to introduce bipartisan legislation to address this growing problem.  I'm cautiously optimistic that this may lead to a bipartisan solution to this problem so we can
Cicilline, DeLauro, Grijalva Introduce Legislation to Stop Gamesmanship in the Oil Markets
WASHINGTON, DC – Amid rising gas prices, Representatives David Cicilline (D-RI), Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) today introduced legislation to curb excessive speculation in the oil markets, a contributor to inflated prices. The Energy Markets Emergency Act would require the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to use their authority to stop excessive speculation in oil futures and swaps markets within two weeks. Speculators now control the majority of oil futures and swaps contracts. “Rhode Island families are already feeling the pain at the pump, and we cannot continue to allow Wall Street to artificially drive up the price of oil,” said Cicilline.  “Excessive oil speculation spikes gas prices and hurts middle class families. I will keep fighting for common-sense solutions to protect Rhode Island consumers by ending these outrageous practices on Wall Street.” “High oil prices affect every aspect of Americans’ lives – not just the cost of travelin
Cicilline Condemns Supreme Court Decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby
PAWTUCKET, RI – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby to weaken a requirement in the Affordable Care Act that provides free or low-cost contraceptive health care coverage to millions of women: “Women, not their bosses, should be in charge of their own personal health care choices. While much work remains, we have made tremendous progress in affording women full equality over many years and this decision rolls back that progress by limiting women's access to contraceptive health care services. “The Affordable Care Act is designed to ensure women have access to quality, affordable health care, including contraception and family planning -- services that are critical to a woman's health care needs. In fact, an overwhelming majority of women use birth control or contraceptives at some point in their lives and the idea that they should be
Cicilline Statement on Independence Day
PAWTUCKET – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement today: Today we celebrate our nation’s independence and the founding principles that continue to serve as the cornerstone of our great democracy – equality, justice and liberty.  Like all Americans, I am looking forward to spending time celebrating our nation’s independence with friends and family this holiday weekend. As all Rhode Islanders know, our state’s history is intertwined with the remarkable history of our nation. Rhode Island was the first of the thirteen original colonies to officially break its ties to Great Britain, two Rhode Islanders – Stephen Hopkins and William Ellery – were among the 56 signers of the Declaration, and Bristol, which I am proud to represent, is home to the oldest continuous Fourth of July celebration in America. Today, I am especially looking forward to marching in the 229th Annual Bristol Fourth of July parade and enjoying great food at my sister’s
