1/12/2017 Rep. Cunha appointed to House Committee on Labor and Committee on Small Business
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Helder J. Cunha (D-Dist. 64, East Providence) was appointed to the House Committee on Labor yesterday by House Speaker Nicholas A. Mattiello (D-Dist. 15, Cranston).  Representative Cunha was also appointed to the House Committee on Small Business. 

“I am honored to have been appointed to the Labor and the Small Business committees and I thank Speaker Mattiello and the rest of my colleagues for their vote of confidence to join these committees as a freshman legislator,” said Representative Cunha.  “As a small business owner myself, I am aware of the daily pressures our state’s laborers and small business owners face and I am eager to tackle these problems head-on within both respective committees.” 

The House Labor Committee deliberates legislation relating to workers’ compensation and labor laws. The Small Business Committee reviews legislation relating to the streamlining of licenses and permits, eliminating or decreasing bureaucratic steps and delays and uncoordinated or duplicative reviews and filings, and reducing associated added costs to businesses.
