Langevin Statement on the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) offered a statement for the record before voting for H.R. 803, the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act. The Honorable Jim Langevin H.R. 803, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act July 9, 2014 Mr. Speaker, I rise to express my strong support for H.R. 803, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). This bill passed the Senate by a vote of 95-3, and I hope it will clear the House with similar support so it can be quickly signed into law by the President.  It is expected that by 2022, the United States will face a shortage of 11 million workers with the necessary level of postsecondary education, including 6.8 million workers with bachelor’s degrees, and 4.3 million workers with a postsecondary vocational certificate, some college credits or an associate’s degree. As co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus, re-authorizing the Workforce Investment Act has been one of my longstanding priorities. T
RI Receives Over $432,000 in Federal Funds to Improve Recreation Areas
In an effort to upgrade parks, preserve open spaces, and create public outdoor recreation opportunities for more Rhode Islanders, U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and U.S. Representatives Jim Langevin and David Cicilline today announced that Rhode Island will receive $432,696 in federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grants. This federal funding will be matched by the state and may be used for acquisition, new construction, and renovation of recreational sites. “Land and Water Conservation Funds help communities across the state develop new outdoor recreational facilities and boost locally-driven conservation efforts. These funds will provide more opportunities for Rhode Islanders to get outside and enjoy the natural beauty of our state,” said Senator Reed, who, as Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior & Environment included LWCF funds in the 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act. “Ensuring the public has free access to first-cl
Delegation Announces $1.9 Million in Assistance to RI Crime Victims

The funding comes through the Justice Department’s Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Victims Assistance Program, and will go to support “direct services” for victims of violent crimes, such as mental health counseling, legal assistance, case management, and home monitoring. “The Crime Victims Fund has helped community organizations throughout Rhode Island provide direct support and services to victims in their time of need,” stated Reed, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) Subcommittee. “People who break the law should help compensate their victims. VOCA, which is financed through fines paid by convicted federal criminal offenders, has successf
Supporting Our Veterans
    Dear Friends, Active duty service members, veterans and their families make a tremendous sacrifice for our nation. It is a sacrifice on which our freedom depends. And the best way to show that gratitude? Support them when they return home. It’s not only about parades or holidays in their honor. Those gestures are meaningful, but more than anything, we need to take real action to ensure the needs of our veterans are being met. I was proud to introduce last month the Military and Veteran Caregiver Services Improvement Act in the wake of a RAND Corporation report that outlined the challenges faced by America’s military and veteran caregivers. These caregivers provide roughly $13.6 billion in annual uncompensated care, and yet are often unprepared for these responsibilities. They are looking out for the best interests of their loved one – a brave veteran of this nation – but are unsure of where to turn for help. That’s where we come in. T
