Accelerating Economic Growth & Helping Businesses Create Good-Paying, Sustainable Jobs
Rhode Island has been hit especially hard by the economic downturn, and Senator Reed is working hard to help save and create jobs to get our economy back on track. He has led efforts to restore emergency unemployment benefits for jobseekers, and to help make health care, college tuition, and energy more affordable for working families.
As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Senator Reed has directed critical federal funding back to the state to improve our infrastructure, put more people to work, and lay the foundation for future economic growth. He continues to push for job creation legislation and a reformed tax code that is fairer for low and middle income Americans.
