New Democrat Coalition Unveils Policy Task Forces
Today, the New Democrat Coalition (NDC), led by NDC Chair Suzan DelBene (WA-01) and Vice Chair for Policy Scott Peters (CA-52), announced the creation of four policy task forces. The NDC policy task forces will work to advance solutions that address the challenges of the 21st Century. The task forces will also play an integral role in developing policy proposals and positions to make progress on the NDC’s 100 Day Agenda, which aims to end the pandemic, create jobs, modernize our infrastructure, combat climate change, protect and expand Americans’ health care, and build a fair and inclusive immigration system.
The NDC task forces are:
- Climate Change Task Force
- Co-Chairs: Reps. Sean Casten (IL-06) and Susan Wild (PA-07)
- Health Care Task Force
- Co-Chairs: Reps. Kim Schrier (WA-08) and Terri Sewell (AL-07)
- Immigration Task Force
- Co-Chairs: Reps. Greg Stanton (AZ-09) and Salud Carbajal (CA-24)
- Infrastructure Task Force
- Co-Chairs: Reps. Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) and Norma Torres (CA-35)
The NDC task force co-chairs are issue-area experts who serve on relevant committees of jurisdiction and can help advance the NDC’s priorities through the House as the NDC works with the Biden-Harris administration to deliver on these pressing issues.
“New Dems are looking to get to ‘yes’ through innovative and pragmatic solutions to some of our nation’s most pressing issues. Americans want governance to work again, and the NDC is ready to get things done on their behalf,” said NDC Chair Suzan DelBene (WA-01). “The NDC’s task forces are committed to finding the best ideas to rebuild our middle class, strengthen our economy, and create more equitable growth and opportunity for working Americans.”
“Our coalition is dedicated to bold, proactive ideas and finding common ground to achieve results,” said NDC Vice Chair for Policy Scott Peters (CA-52). “The task forces we announced today will bring together bright and diverse perspectives to tackle critical issues that require real, pragmatic solutions that actually have a chance to become law. As our country continues to stare down multiple crises, the work of these task forces will advance policies important to the American people and essential to building back better.”
These four task forces will announce additional membership in the coming weeks, and additional task forces will be established throughout this Congress to deliver durable progress on the Coalition’s legislative priorities.
