    CICILLINE of rhode island in the house of representatives Wednesday, January 7, 2015 Mr. CICILLINE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to express my support for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to continue her leadership in the 114th Congress. As the Democratic leader of the U.S. House of Representatives since 2002, Leader Pelosi has led our caucus with exceptional resolve and integrity. Her commitment to Democratic values is evident in her focus on expanding the middle class, growing the economy, expanding affordable access to education, and empowering America's women and families.



    [[Page E22]] From 2007 to 2011 Leader Pelosi served as Speaker of the House and under her leadership the 111th Congress was hailed as ``one of the most productive Congresses in history.'' Among her many accomplishments, Leader Pelosi shepherded passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to create and save millions of American jobs; historic health care reform to expand coverage and lower health care costs for millions of Americans; and strong Wall Street reforms to protect consumers and rein in the big banks. She has also fought discrimination in the workplace and passed into law the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and stands for progressive policies that support child nutrition, energy efficiency, transparency in government, affordable housing and veterans.

    Leader Pelosi is an extraordinary public servant and tested leader. I am proud to support her as leader of the Democratic Caucus and look forward to serving the American people alongside her in the 114th Congress.
