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 ...

Rhode Island receives $20 million award to test health care
Cicilline Statement on House Passage of Cromnibus bill
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives approved a $1.1 trillion government funding bill that contains several policy riders:  “Tonight's vote was a huge giveaway to Wall Street and encourages the unscrupulous speculation and excessive greed that nearly brought our economy to its knees. The Republican-led House approved this spending bill that was crafted behind closed doors, does the bidding of the biggest banks on Wall Street and could put taxpayers on the hook for the risky behavior of large financial institutions -- the same type of reckless behavior that resulted in the financial crash of 2008. Another provision allows wealthy, powerful special interests to buy more influence in Washington by pouring more money into our elections and drowning out the voices of ordinary Americans in our democracy. The spending measure also compromises our national security by failing to provide long
Governor Chafee, the Rhode Island Congressional Delegation, Governor-Elect Raimondo Make an International Business Announcement
Governor Lincoln D. Chafee, joined by U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, Congressmen James Langevin and David Cicilline, Governor-Elect Gina M. Raimondo, and private and public partners, announced today that five international companies are looking to establish a presence in Rhode Island. This announcement is the result of a relationship Governor Chafee built with international partners in Europe during the governor’s trade mission to Italy and Ireland this past April. “I am pleased that my proactive efforts beyond our borders have resulted in economic opportunities for Rhode Islanders,” Governor Chafee said. “I learned during the trade mission to Europe that companies are eager to expand their operations to our state. We need to continue our work to strengthen our role in global economic discussions and entice businesses from around the world to set up shop in our cities and towns.” “This is another positive sign for the state’s economy and a reminder that w
RI Delegation Applauds Major Health Care Grant
State Wins up to $20 Million in CMS Funding to Improve Delivery of Health Care   Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline applauded an award worth up to $20 million for Rhode Island from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to implement and test the state’s Health Care Innovation Plan.    The funding comes as part of CMS’s State Innovation Models (SIM) initiative.  Created as part of the Affordable Care Act, SIM grants encourage states to generate health care payment and service delivery models that promote better quality care at lower cost for beneficiaries of federal programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).     Rhode Island was among the states previously selected for the “designing” phase of the SIM initiative, where recipients prepared a comprehensive Health Care Innovation Plan for reforminghealth care payment and delivery.
