Langevin Statement on Executive Actions on Gun Safety
Congressman Jim Langevin, a member of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, spoke on the House floor about the President’s efforts to ensure more gun purchases are accompanied by background checks. Congressman Jim Langevin Statement on President Obama’s Executive Actions on Gun Safety January 5, 2016 Mister Speaker, this morning, the President announced another series of actions his Administration is taking to curb our nation’s gun violence epidemic. They are important steps, and I commend the President and Vice President for their continued focus on this ongoing crisis. But as the President said today: “Congress still needs to act.” In my fifteen years as a member of this House, Congress time and again has failed to answer the cries of Americans who have lost their loved ones to the scourge of gun violence. Congress has failed to respond to the pleas of Americans disabled by stray bullets. Congress has failed to acknowledge the vast majority of Americans, Republican and
Langevin Invites Hebert to State of the Union

Rhode Island is fortunate to have a strong, proactiv
Langevin Supports Omnibus Spending Bill
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) today voted to support H.R. 2029, a $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill to fund the government for fiscal year 2016. The legislation contains several of Langevin’s priorities, including a boost in funding for respite care services and job training, and support for cybersecurity. “While there are elements of this omnibus that trouble me deeply, such as the lifted ban on crude oil exports or the absence of support for gun violence research, this bill represents a truly bipartisan compromise,” Langevin said. “It brings stability to government and makes investments in important priorities like medical research, education, workforce development, as well as the environment through an extension of tax breaks for solar, wind and other renewable energy producers, and funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund for three more years.” The omnibus spending package provides a $1 million boost for Lifespan Respite Care programs, bringing this year’s
Langevin Statement on President Obama's State of the Union
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address: “I am proud to be an American. It’s a simple statement but one we take for granted. And lately, it is a sentiment that has been corrupted and aligned with principles and ideas that are far from our nation’s true values. There has been too much negativity, distrust, ignorance and fear-mongering in the public sphere of late, and it was refreshing and inspiring to hear President Obama outline the ways in which our country shines. I am proud to be an American, and I am proud of what President Obama had to say this evening. “The challenges we face are significant, but our diversity has always been and continues to be our strength. The enduring resilience of the American spirit tells me that we can and we will overcome these challenging times. We are faced with a complex and ever-changing threat landscape, with security concerns at home and abroad
