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 Helps Advance Package of House Bills to Combat Human Trafficking
WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. House of Representatives approved several important bipartisan bills to  prevent human trafficking and expand and improve services for trafficking victims. Included in the legislative package were two bills Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) cosponsored, including the Human Trafficking Prevention Act (H.R. 357) and the Strengthening Child Welfare Response to Trafficking Act (H.R. 469). “Human trafficking is modern-day slavery—its victims are robbed of both their freedom and their dignity, and these repulsive acts violate our deepest moral values,” said Cicilline, who managed debate on the House Floor yesterday on several bills that were included in this legislative package. According to the U.S. Department of State, an estimated 600,000 to 800,000 men, women, and children are trafficked across international borders each year. The Department of Justice found as many as 17,500 foreign nationals are trafficked into the U.S. each year. This comprehensi
Cicilline Calls on Chairman Smith to Retract Anti-LGBT Statement
WASHINGTON, DC – On January 27, 2015, U.S. Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ), chairman of the House subcommittee that oversees human rights initiatives, stated he does “not construe ‘homosexual rights’ as human rights” during a House Foreign Affairs Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations Subcommittee hearing. U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), who serves on this subcommittee and serves as Co-Chair of the Equality Caucus as one of seven lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) members of Congress, called upon Congressman Smith to retract his statement: “It is completely unacceptable for the chairman of the House subcommittee that oversees human rights to say during a hearing that was broadcast around the world that he does ‘not construe ‘homosexual rights’ as human rights.’ Chairman Smith’s reckless comments, at a time of escalating violence against LGBT individuals around the world, sends a dangerous message that it
Cicilline Statement on the President’s Budget
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) today released the following statement after President Barack Obama unveiled his Fiscal Year 2016 budget proposal: “Today, President Obama released his proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2016 that outlines his funding priorities for the year ahead. This proposal builds on the economic progress we have made by properly focusing on the middle class and supports initiatives that create jobs, educate young people, increase access to affordable childcare, and keeps communities safe. As we continue to reduce our national deficit, the President’s plan will help balance the budget by cutting inefficient spending and ending special interest giveaways for the very wealthy. This proposal is a strong starting point for Congress to work together to produce a smart and sensible budget that reflects the priorities of working Americans, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to reach a final agreement that ensures all Americans s

The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for the entire state of Rhode Island and is forecasting two or more feet of snow across Southern New England with wind gusts in some areas that could reach, or exceed, hurricane force. In an effort to help local Rhode Island communities and the state prepare for and respond to a potential blizzard, the state’s Congressional delegation today sent a letter urging President Obama to issue a
