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 ...

Himes calls for immediate Puerto Rico action
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on the need for immediate federal assistance for Puerto Rico after the devastation of Hurricane Maria: “In the wake of Hurricane Maria, the mounting humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico needs the immediate attention of the federal government.  Three and a half million American citizens are left in blackout conditions, while temperatures in the high 80s elevate the danger. Images on television don’t accurately represent the true destruction the island has suffered, and only the lucky few with access to generators and satellite-based internet connections are able to communicate with the outside. “This tragedy is not happening halfway around the world, but to a US territory filled with fellow citizens to whom we owe the greatest responsibility. Millions of Americans of Puerto Rican heritage living in the United States, including more than a quarter million in Connecticut, are incredibly concerned for t
Himes celebrates VAWA Anniversary
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement today on the 23rd anniversary of the signing of the Violence Against Women Act: “Today marks the 23rd anniversary of the landmark Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), signed into law on September 13, 1994 by President Bill Clinton. Domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking are fundamentally corrosive and destructive, and for too long our country did not do enough to deter these crimes. VAWA helped coordinate the resources of local, state and federal agencies to prevent and address domestic violence, while providing victims with critical services. According to the Department of Justice, domestic violence has dropped by more than half since the law was enacted. “Although Congress was divided in 1994, as it is today, Democrats and Republicans came together to pass VAWA because it was the right thing to do. We have the same opportunity today to cut through the bipartisan mire and pass groundbreaking,
Himes testifies on SERVE Act
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) today testified in front of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity on HR 3634, his Securing Electronic Records for Veterans’ Ease, or SERVE, Act. The bill would make it easier for veterans to secure housing by requiring the Department of Veteran Affairs make documentation of Post 9/11 GI Bill monthly housing stipend accessible and available online. Student veterans will use this documentation to provide needed verification to housing agents, leasing companies, apartment managers, and landlords. Today’s hearing is a positive indication of the bill’s forward momentum, and Congressman Himes looks forward to it being passed out of Committee and brought before the full House of Representatives for a vote. Congressman Himes’ full prepared statement is below.  ___ Thank you Chairman Arrington, Ranking Member O’Rourke and distinguished members of the subcommittee for the opportunity to t
Himes Introduces Bill to Protect Consumers from Credit Data Breach
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) today released the Credit Information Protection Act of 2017, H.R. 3766, in response to a major data breach at Equifax that exposed the personal information of tens of millions of Americans to potential hackers, identity theft, and credit problems. “After the recent breach, millions of people are rightly concerned about having so much of their personal information exposed,” said Himes. “One of the first and most important steps that individuals can take to protect themselves is freezing access to their credit information until they can work with credit reporting agencies to determine their exposure. But, I strongly believe that when a breach occurs it’s not right for the victims to bear the burden of paying for freezes and it is completely unacceptable for a company to profit from the fee charged to freeze files after such a vast security failure. In fact, I hope that Equifax steps up and covers the fees necessary to institute a
