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-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
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
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 introduces Christen O’Donnell Equestrian Helmet Labeling Act
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04), along with Representatives John Larson (CT-01), Elizabeth Esty (CT-05) and John Carney (DE-At Large), introduced the Christen O’Donnell Equestrian Helmet Labeling Act. The bill is designed to let horseback riders know if the headgear they are purchasing meets basic safety requirements. “Eighteen years ago in Darien, Christen O’Donnell died after being thrown from a horse,” said Himes.  “She was 12 at the time.  Christen was wearing a riding hat that looked like it offered protection, but didn’t.  Since her daughter passed away, Kemi O’Donnell has been working to ensure that this doesn’t happen to anyone else’s child. That’s why I introduced this bill. Clear labelling can save lives.” Christen’s Act simply requires a clear and obvious warning label on equestrian headgear, including packaging and advertising materials, if it doesn’t meet the American Society for Testing and Materials safety standards.
