PROBLEM SOLVERS CAUCUS CALLS ON LEADERSHIP TO DEVELOP DEBATE & VOTING OPTIONS
Members of Congress Have a Constitutional Responsibility to Represent Constituents
WASHINGTON – “The bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus recognizes that all members of Congress have a Constitutional obligation to represent his or her constituents by debating and voting in the United States Congress, particularly during the COVID-19 health and economic crisis. We are grateful for the provisional work done on this issue. We now encourage House leadership to develop immediate options for Members to fulfill our fundamental responsibility to debate and vote for use in emergency situations. The Problem Solvers Caucus is eager to assist any task force assigned to develop debate and voting options that fulfill this essential constitutional responsibility. Time is of the essence.”
The Problem Solvers Caucus is a bipartisan group in Congress comprising 48 members – equally divided between Democrats and Republicans – who are committed to forging bipartisan cooperation on key issues. It is co-chaired by Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Congressman Tom Reed (R-NY).
