I’m Here to Listen
           Congressman Langevin at his town hall meeting in Scituate

Dear Friends,

One of the great privileges of serving the Second District is having the opportunity to meet with Rhode Islanders and hear about what’s on their minds. In fact, constituent feedback plays a significant role in the decisions I make in Congress. I always enjoy hosting town hall meetings while I am back home. Without the valuable input of my constituents, I wouldn’t be able to effectively represent you in Washington.

I hosted my latest town hall meeting at the Scituate Senior Center where constituents joined me for an insightful conversation about issues ranging from healthcare to affordable housing.

Access to health and long-term care remains a longstanding concern for seniors and their families. I strongly oppose Medicaid cuts included in the President’s budget proposal to Congress, and I will continue the fight to protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security.

Another topic of discussion at my town hall was affordable housing. Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. However, for some of Rhode Island’s most vulnerable populations, including seniors and veterans, accessing affordable housing can be a challenge. I supported significant funding increases for affordable housing programs in the 2018 government funding bill so more Rhode Islanders can experience the safety and security of having a home to call their own.

We covered a number of important topics at my town hall, but there are many more voices I would love to hear from. I look forward to hosting more public forums while I am in my district, like my quarterly Lunch with Langevin on June 2, and I welcome the feedback of all who attend so I can better understand the concerns of Rhode Island residents.

Be sure to keep up with my activities on my website and by following me on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

            Sincerely,

           Rep. Langevin's Signature

Air Carrier Access for All
I introduced the Air Carrier Access Amendments Act to improve air travel for people with disabilities. On April 27, the House passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, which contained several provisions from my bill, including an Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights. Also included was an amendment I wrote to require a review of the training provided to airport and airline personnel who assist individuals with disabilities. These provisions will help expand the rights of all Americans to travel the skies with dignity.

Kids Do COUNT
Every year, policy makers, advocates, and community leaders gather for the release of the Rhode Island KIDS COUNT Factbook. It provides me with invaluable information as I advocate for programs that improve the lives of children and families. We made progress funding key priorities in the 2018 government spending bill, including $9.9 billion for Head Start and $5.2 billion for Child Care and Development Block Grants, and I believe we can create positive outcomes for our children to ensure they thrive long into the future.
