Welcome!

Thanks for visiting my Congressional website. My staff and I have compiled information about the work I do in Washington and in the 7th Congressional district of Massachusetts.

You may learn the status of key legislation, check out what's happening in Congress on any given day and become familiar with the communities I represent. We've also provided links to sites that you might be interested in visiting.

As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me. It is my honor to represent the people of Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Milton, Randolph, and Somerville.

6/25PRESS RELEASE: EDUCATION
Capuano and Goodlatte: Department of Education Pivots on College Ratings Plan

"It is vitally important to protect students’ free choice in where they seek postsecondary education. ...Rating colleges and universities, with the intent of tying federal aid to those ratings, is not the job of the federal government."

6/23RECENT VOTE: HEALTH CARE
H.R. 1190

This legislation eliminates the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), which was established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as a way to contain Medicare costs. The IPAB is one of the ACA provisions that most concerned me when health care reform was being debated. The President appoints its members and Congress has no authority over its work. Future Presidents may have very different approaches to those they appoint and the role of the IPAB. I voted YES.

6/17RECENT VOTE: IRAQ AND SYRIA
H. Con. Res. 55

The Administration recently announced plans to send 450 more U.S. military personnel to Iraq, bringing the number of U.S. troops in Iraq to approximately 3,500. There is no question that this represents an escalation of the U.S. role in the region. This resolution calls on the Administration to remove most of U.S. Armed Forces from Iraq and Syria unless Congress votes to authorize additional military action. I voted YES.

6/11STATEMENT: IRAQ
Rep. Mike Capuano Statement on Iraq

“I am deeply troubled by the Administration’s decision to send an additional 450 U.S. military personnel into Iraq,” said Rep. Capuano. "It will bring the number of U.S. troops in Iraq to approximately 3,500, a clear escalation of our role in the region. If this effort expands into combat, it should be based on a Congressional authorization, not an Executive order."

6/5PRESS RELEASE: OVERSIGHT OF FEDERAL RESERVE
Reps. Capuano, Garrett Introduce Bill to Limit Fed’s Bailout Authority

“America’s largest financial institutions received unprecedented assistance from the Federal Reserve during the crisis, much of it unknown to the Congress or public at the time,” said Capuano. “This legislation will help protect taxpayer dollars by increasing oversight of the Federal Reserve’s emergency lending powers and bringing much needed transparency to the process.”
