Langevin Statement on Short-Term Funding Extension for Department of Homeland Security
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), senior member of the Committee on Homeland Security, submitted the following statement for the record in response to the proposed three-week funding extension for the Department of Homeland Security: “Mister Speaker, I rise today to register my disbelief that Republicans are continuing to use funding for the Department of Homeland Security as a political football. Every single member of the Democratic Caucus is a cosponsor of a clean, full-year funding bill, a bill that would be sure to pass if House leaders were to allow it to come to the floor. Across the Capitol, the Senate has already passed a clean bill. And yet House Republicans continue to insist that their political priorities take precedence over the operations of an agency vital to our national security. “I am a member of the Committee on Homeland Security. Over the past few weeks, I have heard testimony highlighting the threat that we face from violent extremists, particularly those radic

Langevin Introduces Counseling for Career Choice Act
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-chair of the Congressional Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, today introduced the Counseling for Career Choice Act, legislation that would support comprehensive career counseling programs in high schools nationwide.
