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 Amendment to Strengthen Cyprus Ties Adopted in House of Representatives
WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives this morning adopted an amendment offered by Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) to the National Defense Authorization Act regarding the U.S. arms embargo in Cyprus and its impact on U.S. national security interests. The amendment requires the Secretaries of Defense and State to submit a report to Congress assessing the impact of the embargo on Cyprus’ national security and counterterrorism efforts. The embargo, which dates back to 1992, does not reflect the current relationship Cyprus has with the United States as a key ally and strategic partner in the Global War on Terror. Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) co-sponsored the amendment. Congressman Cicilline issued the following statement: “For more than 20 years, the United States has banned the export of defensive weapons to the Republic of Cyprus. In light of the integral role that Cyprus has played in the Global War on Terror by opening its ports and airports for missions in Iraq

Cicilline urged House Republican leaders today to move forward on a long-term reauthorization of the Highway and Transit Trust Fund in order to preserve $200 million in federal highway funding for Rhode Island and nearly 1,700 Rhode Island jobs. The full text of his remarks on the House Floor is embedded below: ------------------ David N. Cicilline Floor Remarks on Highway Trust Fund May 13, 2015 Mr. Speaker, before I begin, I want to offer my condolences to everyone who was affected by the derailment of Amtrak Train 188 yesterday. The victims and their loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers today. This week, Mr. Speaker, is National Infrastructure Week, and I rise today to underscore the importance of a long-term reauthorization for the Highway and Transit Trust Fund so we can address the urgent responsibility to repair and rebuild our roads, bridges, ports, and transit systems. There are just six legislative days remaining until the e
House Adopts Cicilline’s “Brickle Amendment” to National Defense Authorization Act
WASHINGTON - The U.S. House of Representatives tonight adopted Congressman David N. Cicilline’s “Brickle amendment” to the National Defense Authorization Act. The Brickle amendment, which is named for Rhode Island textile manufacturer Sam Brickle, would impose new transparency requirements by requiring the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State to document efforts to engage American manufacturers on procurement opportunities to equip Afghan National Security Forces. Sam Brickle, chairman of the board of the Rhode Island-based Brickle Group, issued the statement below following the adoption of the amendment: “We first brought this issue to Congressman Cicilline’s attention during a meeting last year. American manufacturers have been at a competitive disadvantage for years because the Department of Defense is not required to notify them about overseas military contracts. Today’s adoption of this language means there will be greater transparency to show that the Departm
USA FREEDOM Act Clears House of Representatives
WASHINGTON – Voting 338-88, the House of Representatives today approved the USA FREEDOM Act – legislation that Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) has co-sponsored and worked last week to pass through the House Judiciary Committee in order to end the NSA’s controversial bulk data collection program. “I am pleased that the House moved swiftly to pass the USA FREEDOM Act today, but even after this legislation is signed into law, there is still be more work to do in order to curb other excesses of government surveillance,” said Cicilline, an original co-sponsor of the proposal. “I will continue to work with advocates for additional reforms that are necessary to curtail Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) so the National Security Agency is prohibited from indiscriminately spying on American citizens and also to limit the use of roving wiretaps by the Federal government.” The Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ensuring Effe
