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 ...

CONNECTICUT DELEGATION URGES EPA TO REDUCE DANGEROUS AIR POLLUTION FROM NEIGHBORING STATE’S COAL PLANT
In support of a recent petition from the State of Connecticut, the delegation called on the EPA to limit emissions from the Brunner Island coal plant and improve air quality in Connecticut   [WASHINGTON, D.C.] —Today, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Congressman Jim Himes (D-4) along with Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), Congressman John Larson (D-1), Congressman Joe Courtney (D-2), Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-3), and Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (D-5) sent a letter urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce dangerous air pollution from the Brunner Island coal plant in Pennsylvania. The Brunner Island coal plant is the largest facility in the Northeast that lacks effective pollution controls for nitrogen oxides. The plant’s emissions cross state borders, spreading throughout the Northeast and greatly contributing to smog pollution in the region. The lawmakers wrote in support of the State of Connecticut’s recent petition to limit emissions from the Brunner Isl
Himes Statement on Week of Violence
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) made the following statement about last night’s sniper attacks that took the lives of five Dallas police officers last night and wounded seven others: “Grief does not begin to describe the pain in my heart for the fallen officers in Dallas, victims of a vicious pre-meditated attack.  These murders, following so quickly the profoundly troubling deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile, the mass shooting in Orlando and the seemingly daily onslaught of violence in American communities, have shaken us deeply.  The loss of any innocent life is a tragedy, and it must stop. More violence will solve nothing.”
Himes leads letter to SEC, FINRA regarding IPO Gross Spreads
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) led a letter signed by eight other members of Congress to Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Mary Jo White and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Chairman Richard Ketchum raising questions about gross spreads paid by young companies to financial institutions for underwriting IPOs. In the United States, gross spreads for small- and moderate-sized IPOs between $25 million and $250 million undertaken by emerging entrepreneurial companies cluster around 7%. “All of the signatories of this letter supported the JOBS Act, which tried to reduce compliance costs for businesses by $1-2 million annually,” said Himes. “The difference in a few percentage points in a gross spread for an IPO can be significantly more than that and could make the difference between success and bankruptcy, so we believe it’s worthwhile to take a closer look at this clustering.” Himes’ letter is based partially on a paper titled “Why don
Himes statement on gun control sit-in in House of Representatives
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement today: By taking part in this sit-in, the rest of the Connecticut delegation and I are keeping our promise to end the silence and speak out in favor of sensible gun laws. Led by Representative John Lewis, who knows more about the power of protest than anyone else in the House, we will hold the floor as long as we can and continue to push for votes to expand background checks and keep guns out of the hands of terrorists. These measures have overwhelming support from the American public and it is morally indefensible for Congress to deny them a vote.
