Himes talks economy, debt reduction

The country is at great risk for a double-dip recession, but that doesn't mean the government should make haphazard spending cuts, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Greenwich, told a small group of local business peopleTuesday. "There are people, often on the other side of the aisle from me, who say, at all costs, cut," Himes said. "Scale back teachers, scale back government spending, scale back defense, you name it. Yes, we need to do that. But you do it too much, too fast, and you're going to do exactly what this nation did in '37 and bounce back into a double-dip." Himes addressed members of the ...

Statement of Congressman Jim Himes on the Passage of the Continuing Resolution
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) made the following statement about his vote for the continuing resolution last night and the House passage of aid for Flint Michigan: Last night, I voted for a continuing resolution to keep the federal government from shutting down at the end of September and funding our fight against Zika. While the bill itself was good, we shouldn’t be in the position of passing last-minute legislation. When Speaker Ryan assumed his position, we were told that the era of Congress lurching from cliff to cliff and deadline to deadline was past, and yet here we are again, doing work we’ve had all year to work on with only hours to spare. That’s not the way the American people expect us to run their government and it needs to stop. Earlier today, Congress passed the Water Resources Development Act of 2016, which included money to help people in Flint, Michigan who continue to suffer from the fallouts of lead in their water, one of the major st
Himes-Dent “Dangerous Synthetic Drug Control Act” Passes House with Bipartisan Vote
  WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last week, the House of Representatives passed the bipartisan “Dangerous Synthetic Drug Control Act of 2015” (H.R. 3537) sponsored by Congressman Charlie Dent (PA-15) and Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) through a vote of 258 – 101. Following the bill’s passage, Congressman Dent stated, “I have been working for several years to bring attention to the very serious threat that synthetic drugs pose to the health and safety of communities in Pennsylvania and the nation as a whole, which is why I am ecstatic to see H.R. 3537 voted out of the House with bipartisan support.  Many of these drugs possess similar or even more harmful effects than other illegal drugs, like heroin or PCP, but they can be deceptively distributed through legal channels on the basis that their specific chemical compounds are not expressly prohibited. This bill will expand the chemical compounds listed under the Controlled Substances Act to get the ‘worst of the worst’ offenders off
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), and U.S. Representative Jim Himes (CT-4) on Wednesday announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded a three-year, $179,776 per year federal grant to the Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport, Inc., to support the Janus Center for Youth in Crisis. With help from this grant, the Janus Center will provide shelter and homelessness prevention and intervention services to 1,200 male, female and transgender runaway, homeless and street youth under the age of 18 from Bridgeport, Stratford, Fairfield, Trumbull, Monroe and Easton. The Janus Center runs a 24-hour crisis hotline; provides youth and family counseling; conducts mental health, substance abuse, and trafficking assessments; provides up to three weeks of supportive shelter; and directly serves eight public middle and high schools to facilitate early behavioral and mental health interventions. “For over
Himes joins 167 Dems calling for removal of Steve Bannon
  Congressman Jim Himes joined with 167 other Democrats to send a letter to President-elect Donald Trump calling on him him to rescind the appointment of Stephen Bannon as chief White House strategist. You can also download the letter below: Dear President-elect Trump: Immediately following your victory, many Americans were optimistic and hopeful that you would take the steps necessary to unify our country following the divisive and contentious election.  In your election night speech you said, “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division.  It is time for us to come together as one united people.”  Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the White Nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country.  As elected representatives of millions of Americans from diverse backgrounds, religions, and ethnicities, we strongly urge you to reconsider your decision to appoint Mr. Bannon to White House
