WASHINGTON, D.C. (ABC4 News) – Congressman Ben McAdams on Monday was named to a Housing Task Force designed to advance policies that help the economy and Congress get on track.
McAdams is the Co-Chair of the New Democrat Coalition Housing Task Force. The other co-chairs are Congressman Denny Heck from Washington and Congresswoman Katie Hill from California.
“I am excited to lead the New Democrat Coalition Housing Task Force because Utah has both challenges and opportunities when it comes to all aspects of availability and affordability of housing,” said McAdams. “The New Dems have a strong reputation for reaching across the aisle to get things done and I am ready to work with my colleagues to find common-sense policy solutions in this area.”
“The New Democrats are about finding innovative solutions to complicated issues,” said Rep. Suzan DelBene, Vice-Chair for Policy. “The American people have said they want Congress to get things done. With this talented group, we’re committed to finding the best ideas to expand our middle class and create opportunities for hardworking families in this new economy.”
Over 100 Democrats, who are committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation and fiscally responsible policies, make up the New Democrat Coalition.
