Patrick Kennedy

Patrick J. Kennedy is serving his sixth term in Congress as the representative from the First District of Rhode Island. In January 2001, Patrick assumed his seat on the influential Appropriations Committee, where he and his colleagues examine the needs of communities and determine where limited federal dollars are most needed. He utilizes this committee membership in order to bolster economic growth and to improve the standard of living in Rhode Island in many areas such as health care, education, and jobs. His Subcommittees on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education, and on Commerce, Justice, State, and Judiciary, also determine how to fund vital agencies such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institute of Health, and Head Start among others.
