Reed, Whitehouse and Langevin Celebrate $770,000 in Federal Funding for Narragansett Fire Department
Today, at the Narragansett Fire Department headquarters, U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Congressman Jim Langevin announced $769,582 in federal funding for the Narragansett Fire Department to purchase a new ladder truck and firefighting equipment. Reed, Whitehouse, and Langevin also toured the headquarters and heard from firefighters about how this funding will help keep Narragansett residents safe. The Narragansett Fire Department’s current ladder truck is 30 years old and in critical need of replacement. The Department will receive $690,477 from Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG) toward the cost of a new ladder truck. In addition, the Department will receive an AFG award of $79,105 to replace all hoses on the Department’s engines, purchase new nozzles, and replace three master stream devices. “When the alarm sounds and our firefighters answer the call, it’s our duty to ensure the equipment they rely on
Langevin Statement on Iran Agreement
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee and the House Committee on Homeland Security, released the following statement in response to the deal reached on Iran’s nuclear program: “After decades of tension and sanctions, and nearly two years of intense negotiations, it is encouraging to see this progress. There are many difficult questions that need to be answered before I can support any deal with Iran, but I applaud the negotiators for their commitment to this critical challenge, and I look forward to reviewing the agreement in the days to come. In the not so distant past, the prospect of reaching any agreement seemed impossible. That we have made it this far is the result of hard work and commitment to diplomacy on the part of the Administration and our international partners in negotiation. But the work is far from finished. “I am eager to review the details of this agreement to ensure that it is verifiable, that the goal of preven
CCRI to Receive Major Federal Grant to Help Disadvantaged Students Succeed in College
As Rhode Island’s Congressional delegation continues working to make college more affordable and protect Pell grants from budget cuts, U.S. Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and U.S. Representatives Jim Langevin and David Cicilline today announced over $554,000 in federal funding to support existing college success and completion programs at Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI). The U.S. Department of Education, which administers the TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) program, notified CCRI that “it is anticipated that the grants will be for a total of five years,” meaning the college could receive as much as $2,773,710 through 2020, pending annual appropriations by Congress. First-generation college students, those who meet low-income qualifications, or those with a disability are eligible to apply for TRIO. In order to help these students navigate college life, the SSS program offers specialized tutoring, along with workshops on issues like financial literacy, le
Langevin Letter Addresses Export Controls on Cybersecurity Software
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a senior member of the House Committee on Homeland Security and its Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection and Security Technologies, submitted public comments to the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) at the Department of Commerce in regard to the Wassenaar Arrangement on international export controls. The proposed rule, issued on May 20, would govern the export of “intrusion software,” which was added to the list of controlled technologies by the Wassenaar Arrangement Plenary in 2013. While the intent of the rule is to keep hacking tools out of the hands of malicious actors, Langevin believes BIS’s implementation of the controls is too broad and could therefore restrict research and slow the disclosure of vulnerabilities. “We have seen time and again the havoc wreaked by data breaches and malicious hacks, and I appreciate the intent of the BIS to narrowly target offensive hacking tools and keep them from criminal organizat
