New Democrat Coalition Unveils Second Slate of 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 three additional policy task forces on rural reinvestment, future of work and capitalism, and trade. The second slate of NDC policy task forces for the 117th Congress will join the previously announced Climate Change, Health Care, Immigration, and Infrastructure Task Forces.

These additional NDC policy task forces will develop and advance solutions that help harness the opportunities for workers and our economy in the 21st century, strengthen our rural communities, and ensure the U.S. is setting the rules for the global economy.

The newly announced NDC task forces are:

The members chosen to co-chair these NDC task forces 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 Congressional committees and the Biden-Harris administration to deliver on these pressing issues.

“New Dems are focused on getting things done and delivering tangible change for Americans so that they can succeed in the 21st century,” said NDC Chair Suzan DelBene (WA-01). “The NDC’s task forces will continue to help deliver by developing policy ideas that promote equitable growth and opportunities for all Americans.

“As we emerge from the COVID-induced economic catastrophe, Congress must deliver results that bolster America’s workforce, trade, and rural communities so we can build back better,” said NDC Vice Chair for Policy Scott Peters (CA-52). “The NDC task forces we announced today will uncover vital solutions to tackle the challenges ahead.” 

Full membership for the second slate of task forces will be announced in the coming weeks. This slate of task forces will build on the progress of the first slate of task forces and priorities from the NDC’s 100 Day Agenda to create jobs, modernize our nation’s systems and institutions, close opportunity gaps, and provide Americans with the skills to succeed.
