House passes Himes’ SERVE Act
WASHINGTON, DC— Today, the House of Representatives passed Congressman Jim Himes’ (CT-04) bill, HR 3634, the Securing Electronic Records for Veteran’s Ease, or SERVE, Act. The SERVE Act 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.

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
