Congressman Neal Visits Springfield's Titeflex Facility

Flexible Teflon hoses from Titeflex’s Springfield factory flew on the Space Shuttle, fly now on new Airbus and Boeing jetliners, and carry glue in the machines that churn out disposable diapers. Hurt, like many manufactures, by the recession and slowdowns in the automotive industry, Titeflex is hiring again, a message company officials shared this week when they gave a tour to U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal, D-Springfield. Once courted by economic development officials in South Carolina, Titeflex used $4 million in investments from its parent company, British-based Smiths Group, and a local ...

Neal could face challenge from former Pittsfield st. senator

Top state lawmakers Monday released a new congressional district map that dramatically overhauls the district of U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal of Springfield and positions him to face a former state senator from Pittsfield in next year's primary. Under the proposed map, Western Massachusetts would lose one of the two congressional districts currently based in the region. If approved, the new districts would go into effect for next year's election. Neal's new 1st congressional district would pick up all of Berkshire County and would expand from 41 communities to 82. The new 1st district would ...

Neal opposed to United Arab Emirates-owned company running U.S. ports
Lawmaker will support legislation in Congress to block sale (WASHINGTON) Congressman Richard E. Neal is strongly opposed to a decision by the Bush administration that would allow a United Arab Emirates (UAE) owned company to acquire control of six major seaports on the East coast of the United States. The proposed $6.8 billion sale, approved by the Committee for Financial Investment in the United States (CIFUS), would permit Dubai Ports World to manage operations at ports in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Orleans and Miami. Congressman Neal announced today that he intends to support legislation in Congress that would suspend the sale to Dubai Ports World on March 2. He has also called on the Homeland Security Committee to hold immediate public hearings focusing on the issues involved in the DP World transaction.  "I believe the Bush administration has shown poor judgment in hastily approving this sale to a company that is owned and controlled by the United A
Neal calls for Rumsfeld's resignation
Cites the Secretary of Defense's mismanagement of the Iraq war (WASHINGTON) Citing his mismanagement of the Iraq war, Congressman Richard E. Neal today called for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. After more than three years at war,  approximately 2,396 American casualties, and with no honorable exit strategy in sight, Neal said it was time for Rumsfeld to step aside. In October 2002, Neal was 1 of 133 House Members who voted against the resolution authorizing the use of military force against Iraq. "Since the beginning of the war, I have had serious concerns and reservations about Donald Rumsfeld's leadership," said Neal. "I never believed that the Secretary of Defense sent enough troops to Iraq, but he dismissed those who questioned his judgment at the time. When Army General Eric Shinseki told Congress in 2003 that that "several hundred thousand troops" would be needed to secure postwar Iraq, he was rebuked by Rumsfeld. That was a defining moment for many
Statement of Congressman Neal on the May 15 perscription drug enrollment deadline
"Nearly half of Medicare beneficiairies don't know that May 15 is the deadline for enrolling without penalty in a prescription drug plan. Many seniors and people with disabilities in westren Massachusetts are unaware about the stiff and unfair penalties they will pay if they miss the deadline and enroll later. I strongly believe the May 15 deadline should be extended to December 31 and that penalties during this period should be eliminated. President Bush should give seniors a fair chance to understand this complex and confusing program," said Congressman Richard E. Neal.  
Olver and Neal announce House approval of $1.5 million for Connecticut River clean-up
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) Congressmen John W. Olver (D-1st District) and Richard E. Neal (D-2nd District) announced that the U.S. House of Representatives has approved $1.5 million for critical sewage control projects along the Connecticut River in Holyoke, Springfield, South Hadley, Chicopee and Ludlow. The funding was included in the fiscal year 2007 Interior, Environment Appropriations bill. Olver is a member of the Interior, Environment Appropriations Subcommittee and worked with Neal to secure the funding.   “The Environmental Protection Agency mandate to correct combined sewer overflows is an environmentally sound endeavor, but unfortunately, there is not sufficient funding in the State Revolving Loan Fund to even come close to meeting the needs of these communities,” Congressman Olver said. “Despite this obstacle, I’m pleased we’ve been able to secure this modest appropriation to move critical CSO projects forward, and we’ll keep at it.” “The Connecticut River is a
