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 Statement on Passing of James Brady
PAWTUCKET, RI – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a founding member of the national organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns, today issued the following statement after learning of the death of former White House Press Secretary James Brady: “Like all Americans, I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of James Brady today. As a former White House Press Secretary and dedicated public servant, Mr. Brady’s words helped shape the President’s strong connection to the American people, but his voice was strongest as an advocate for commonsense gun safety legislation. Following an assassination attempt on the life of President Reagan where Mr. Brady was tragically shot, he and his loving wife Sarah devoted their lives to preventing gun violence and played an essential role in passing the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act. Mr. Brady also served as an Honorary Member of the Board of Trustees at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which bears his name and has b
On the Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act
At the heart of a functioning democracy is the right of every citizen to cast their ballot and to have their vote counted. Free and fair elections are central to the survival of our democracy and the only guarantee that the voices of the American people are heard.  For several decades, the Voting Rights Act has played a central role in protecting and preserving this right for millions of Americans who otherwise might be disenfranchised. Today we mark its 49th anniversary. Since it became law in 1965, the Voting Rights Act has been repeatedly renewed by bipartisan majorities in Congress.  For example, in its most recent reauthorization in 2006, the Voting Rights Act was renewed for 25 years by a vote of 390-33 in the House and 98-0 in the Senate. In fact, many have argued that the Voting Rights Act of 1965 is this country’s most significant and effective civil rights law. Last year, I was deeply disappointed in the Supreme Court’s narrow 5-4 decision to strike down Section 4 of th
Cicilline, Liberian-American Leaders Meet to Discuss Ebola Outbreak
PAWTUCKET, RI – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) today met with Liberian Community Association of Rhode Island President Winston Gould, African Alliance of Rhode Island President Julius Kolawole, and Rhode Island Department of Health Director Dr. Michael Fine to discuss the outbreak of Ebola in Liberia and other West African nations. Earlier today, Cicilline received a briefing from officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) on the outbreak and U.S. and response from the U.S. and international community. Rhode Island is home to an estimated 15,000 Liberian immigrants, many of whom have family and friends living in Liberia where there have been over 516 suspected and confirmed cases of Ebola. “This health crisis is the largest of its kind and one that the international community can’t ignore,” said Cicilline, a member of the
Congressional Delegation Announces $6.2 Million in Additional Medicare Payments for Four RI Hospitals
CRANSTON, RI – Seeking to help ensure patients have access to quality health care at state hospitals while supporting a significant source of jobs in Rhode Island, U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and U.S. Representatives James Langevin and David Cicilline today announced that Kent, Newport, South County, and Westerly Hospitals will receive approximately $6.2 million in additional Medicare payments following the renewal of a “wage index” adjustment by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). First implemented in 2012, the CMS Inpatient Hospital Prospective Payment System final rule accounts for different labor costs across the country, and it has been renewed again this year with a $425,000 increase over last year’s $5.75 million adjustment. “The additional federal funds are a victory for these Rhode Island hospitals, who rely on an even playing field to compile a budget and fairly compensate staff who are providing care to patients,” said Reed
