With the new Congressional session in full swing, Congressman Langevin has returned to Washington and remains focused on working for the people. While he is eager to continue advocating for Rhode Island’s Second Congressional District, I want to share some of our accomplishments from 2019.
Last year, the House of Representatives considered and passed important legislation to cut high health care costs, raise wages, protect our elections, and more. As a part of these efforts, Congressman Langevin authored 27 bills and amendments and cosponsored 276 pieces of legislation.
Important work was done on the ground in Rhode Island as well. Our Constituent Service Representatives resolved problems for 637 constituents, helping address a wide range of matters from Social Security to veterans affairs. The office also helped procure over $2 million in benefits and savings for Rhode Islanders in need and helped secure over $526 million in federal grants for the District.
Lastly, to hear directly from Rhode Islanders about the most pressing issues and how to help, Congressman Langevin participated in 215 public events, including four as part of the “Lunch with Langevin” series. Further, we continued to engage 440 community leaders like you across eight advisory committees.
Our work is far from over, but we have much to be proud of. We’ve entered the new decade ready to help in any way that we can.
