CAUCUSES - Caucuses are groups formed by Representatives who share something in common, be it geography, policy interests, ethnicity, ideology or even a shared love for a particular food or drink. I have joined the caucuses listed below because I believe it is important for legislators to come together around shared interests, to better understand our colleagues and the diverse communities they serve.

I am the co-chair of the Crime Prevention and Youth Development Caucus, along with Rep. David Reichert of Washington. Together, we hope to lead the Caucus to achieve the goal of helping Members of Congress better understand the developmental and justice challenges facing the children of the United States of America, and to create bipartisan solutions to chose challenges.

I also co-founded the the bipartisan Congressional Student-Athlete Protection Caucus with Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania. The Caucus was founded to both inform Congressional members about physical, academic and financial issues faced by student-athletes, and to ensure that all student-athletes participating in collegiate athletics are treated fairly and are provided with the educational promise that is at the heart of collegiate athletics.
