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 Mass Shooting in Orlando
PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), the author of both the Equality Act and the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015, issued the following statement today:   “Like all Rhode Islanders, I am keeping the people of Orlando, the victims, their families and loved ones in my thoughts and prayers today.”   “It’s outrageous that LGBT Americans continue to be the targets of such horrific hatred and violence in 2016. Don’t let anyone tell you that we have full equality in this country. LGBT people are not political wedge issues – we are human beings and we are entitled to full equality under the law. I hope that, in the aftermath of this horrific shooting, our country will move towards greater love and acceptance of all Americans.”   “Lastly, it is absolutely infuriating to read reports that this shooter used an assault weapon to murder 50 innocent people and wound 53 more. It just should not be this easy for someone to walk into a gun store and walk out armed with

Rhode Island’s federal delegation today announced $474,400 in federal funding to support emergency food and shelter programs that serve the hungry and homeless.  The funding is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) and may be utilized by local social service agencies to offer food, housing, and utility assistance for those in need.    “This federal funding will help fight poverty in Rhode Island.  This grant helps local non-profits put food on the table and provide shelter for those in need.  By working together with local service agencies, this cost-effective program builds the capacity of food pantries and shelter programs in high-need areas,” said U.S. Senator Jack Reed.   “Too many Rhode Islanders are one illness or job loss away from losing their home or the ability to feed their family,” said U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.  “This federal funding will help families in crisis to put food on
