Langevin Statement on Passage of an Omnibus Spending Bill
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement in response to House passage of a $1.1 trillion spending bill by a vote of 219-206: “I applaud the work Chairman Rogers, Ranking Member Lowey and their staffs put towards drafting legislation to fund the federal government. Sadly, I cannot support the finished product due to extraneous provisions that have no business being in an appropriations bill. These riders, included at the last minute with no debate and no input from Democratic members, circumvent the will of American voters, harm retirees, put taxpayer dollars at risk, and allow a privileged few to have even more influence over our elections.  “These extraneous provisions have nothing to do with funding the government. Instead, they will cut benefits to seniors and roll back critical Dodd-Frank provisions to protect taxpayer dollars. They will also increase the amount of money that special interests, private corporations, and wealthy donors can spend on politi

Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s announcement regarding relations with Cuba: “First and foremost, I am pleased to hear that Alan Gross has been freed after five years of imprisonment in Cuba. His release is long overdue, and my thoughts are with him and his family as they are reunited. “Today’s announcement by President Obama represents the largest shift in U.S. policy towards Cuba in more than 50 years. It has been clear for some time that our past policy of isolation was not accomplishing its objectives, and was instead impairing and constraining American policy options towards Cuba and throughout the Western Hemisphere. I am hopeful that the announced steps will serve to strengthen the channels of communication and cultivate a new level of engagement between our two nations. However, this cooperative spirit must extend to the larger challenges of addressing continued human rights violations and promoting t

We need to continue our work to strengthen our role in global economic discussions and entice businesses from around the world to set up shop in our cities and towns.” “This is another positive sign for the state’s economy and a reminder that w
