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 ...

Providence ‘Welcomes Aboard’ $13 Million TIGER Grant for Proposed Streetcar Plan
PROVIDENCE, RI – In an effort to help spur economic development and smart growth in Providence and better connect neighborhoods to downtown, Rhode Island’s Congressional Delegation today announced that the City of Providence is receiving a $13 million federal grant towards a proposed streetcar system between Upper South Providence and College Hill.  The U.S. Department of Transportation approved Providence’s competitive grant application for a Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant, which means the federal government will pitch in and cover about 11 percent of the $117.8 million transportation project, should the city decide to move forward with its streetcar plan. “After years of advocacy and hard work, I’m thrilled Providence will have the opportunity to move forward with its streetcar project.  This is great news that will mean jobs, business development, and a more walkable and livable Capital City for Rhode Islanders,” said Congressman

The horrific and brutal attacks on the morning of September 11, 2001, forever changed our country and the world, and left an indelible mark on the history of our great nation. During that difficult time, we also saw inspiring examples of the American spirit – in the first responders who worked day and night searching for survivors at the World Trade Center; in the Americans all across the country who united to help the victims, their families and the country recov
