Cicilline (RI-01), who joined President Biden for today’s announcement of new executive orders to combat gun violence, issued the statement below: “The United States is the only developed country in the world where gun violence is a public health emergency.

Cicilline Praises President Biden’s American Jobs Plan

Issues: Jobs and the Economy

“President Biden’s American Jobs Plan is the kind of bold, innovative investment in America’s future that we have not seen since we built the interstate highways and won the space race. As all of us continue working to crush the virus, it’s critical that we remember we can’t just build back to the way things were before. This is a time for us to reimagine and rebuild a new economy that works for all Americans, not just the wealthy. The American Jobs Plan will make this possible by creating millions of good-paying jobs, rebuilding our infrastructure, and positioning us to out-compete China in the years ahead.”
