Langevin, Whitehouse, Reed Lead Legislation to Harness Offshore Wind Energy
Today, Congressman Jim Langevin and Senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Jack Reed reintroduced legislation that would spur the growth of offshore wind energy in the United States by extending tax credits for this burgeoning renewable industry. The Offshore Wind Incentives for New Development (WIND) Act would extend the 30 percent Investment Tax Credit for offshore wind through 2025. “I’m proud to say that America’s first offshore wind farm is powering Rhode Island homes and businesses with clean, renewable energy. Building the wind farm off Block Island has been a boost for our economy, and those turbines are already reducing our region’s carbon footprint,” said Senator Whitehouse, a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee and co-chair of the Senate Climate Action Task Force. “This bill will extend an important investment tax credit to expand the benefits of offshore wind we’re enjoying in Rhode Island to coastal communities across the country.” “I am pleased
Langevin Statement Opposing Republican Bill to Dismantle the Affordable Care Act
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement after voting against H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), a bill that passed the House by a vote of 217-213.  “When Republicans brought the AHCA to the floor in March, they could not even hold a vote due to the immense unpopularity of its measures attacking Americans’ health care. Remarkably, their response was to double down and further erode patient protections included as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It is unconscionable that House Republicans have forced through a bill in the service of a purely partisan political goal at the expense of their constituents’ health. Rather than collaborate in a bipartisan manner to improve upon the ACA, Republicans have opted to support an initiative that will exacerbate issues of affordability and access for Rhode Islanders and all Americans. “An estimated 24 million people will lose health coverage under this bill, among them many of the 20 million American
Langevin Statement on Trump’s Decision to Fire FBI Director Comey
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a senior member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey: “The firing of FBI Director Comey today, while he was in the midst of investigating the President’s ties to the Russian government, is deeply disturbing and raises a host of questions. It is imperative that a special prosecutor, immune from dismissal by the President, be appointed immediately to continue that investigation free from political interference. “The Russian information operations targeting last year’s election represented a direct assault on our democracy, an assault that is now being waged against our allies as well. That is why Congress must also act by enacting my resolution to form a Joint Select Committee on the election hacking and by creating an independent commission to ensure that the American people know the facts of the interference and any collusion that may h
Langevin Statement on Trump’s Cybersecurity Executive Order
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus and a senior member of the House Committees on Armed Services and Homeland Security, issued the following statement on President Trump’s Executive Order “Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure:” “As noted by intelligence leaders in testimony this morning, cybersecurity is a principal national security challenge facing our nation, and I commend Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert and his team for developing this Executive Order (EO), which provides an outline for cybersecurity activities under the Trump Administration. In my time working on cybersecurity in Congress, it has always been a bipartisan issue, and I hope the Administration will work closely with Congress to implement the measures laid out in the document. “With respect to protecting federal networks, the EO continues the path set forward under the Obama Administration toward
