PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rep. Jim Langevin has updated financial disclosure statements he filed in recent years to include the fact that he borrowed money against the value of two homes he owns.

WPRI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2erOpZq ) the 2nd Congressional District Democrat wrote in a letter to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives that he regrets “that these items were not originally included in a timely manner.”

Langevin took out two home-equity lines of credit in 2009. The first was in June against a home in Washington, D.C.’s Logan Circle section and the second was in October against the Warwick home that he lists as his primary residence.

Officials in Langevin’s office declined to comment.

Langevin is seeking his ninth two-year term and analysts say he’s not in danger of losing his seat.
