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.

Himes Introduces Reclamation of War Powers Act
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) introduced the Reclamation of War Powers Act, a bill that would explicitly return the power to declare and wage war back to Congress as the Constitution requires. “The power to make and execute war is explicitly granted to Congress in article I section 8 of the Constitution,” said Himes.  “In the years following 9/11, however, we have ceded that power more and more to the President to the point where, now, we operate in state of perpetual pseudo-war where neither the executive or Congress is ultimately responsible. That has to end. It’s Congress’s right. It’s Congress’s duty.” The bill has three main provisions: ·         Congresses won’t fund the introduction of US armed forces into hostilities without a declaration of war, specific statutory authorization, or a national emergency created by an attack or imminent threat of attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or the Armed Forces
Himes leads letter requesting qualified Science Advisor
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04), along with nine other Members of Congress, sent a letter to President-elect Donald Trump asking him to quickly appoint a qualified Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, usually known as the President’s Science Advisor. “There is a fear and concern among the American people that the incoming Administration is going to disregard the advice and recommendations of the scientific community,” said Himes. “America’s strength has always stemmed from our ingenuity and commitment to fact-based decision making. We now face a situation where decisions that will affect the future of our country – in areas including climate change, national security, exploration, health and the economy – could be made by individuals who are not just lacking a scientific background, but are, in fact, aggressively anti-science. A qualified Science Advisor would be a key component in mitigating any ideologically-driven, destructive de
Honoring Sandy Hook with Action
Statement of Congressman Jim Himes on the fourth anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook elementary: My heart still aches for those 20 children and six courageous educators who lost their lives four years ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School. This pain is felt throughout all of Connecticut and the nation, and I mourn with everyone who has been affected by this tragedy.  But the challenge we face calls for more than shared grief and heavy hearts. That’s why I pledge my unwavering commitment to action against the onslaught of gun violence. We cannot be complacent with the daily mass shootings that continue to plague our communities. We cannot refuse to implement even the most basic of gun safety regulations. We cannot allow partisan differences stop us from passing legislation that will prevent the next mass shooting. We cannot honor these victims if we do not act to stop the bloodshed. I’ve voiced my disapproval of Congress’s disregard for the thousands of people impacted by gu
