Americans Abroad Caucus
In early 2007 Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC), formed the first bipartisan Americans Abroad Caucus to address the concerns of several million US citizens living outside the United States. The caucus has rapidly grown in membership. ACA congratulates these enterprising members of Congress for this wonderful and most promising initiative.
A caucus is an informal group that brings together members of Congress who want to combine their political muscle to take action on a given issue. While caucuses do not receive funding, staff, or office space, this caucus can provide a valuable forum for overseas Americans to make their voices heard in Washington.
More info on some of the historical work of the Caucus see: http://maloney.house.gov/search/node/Americans Abroad Caucus
Currently the Americans Abroad Caucus consists of 25 members. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Congressman Mick Mulvaney (D-SC) Co-Chair the Caucus. More information on the Caucus along with direct links to their websites can be found at: Members
ACA encourages Americans living overseas to write to their respective Congressmen or Congresswomen in the US House of Representatives to encourage them to join this Americans Abroad Caucus, as well as to their US Senators to encourage them to set up a similar caucus in the Senate.
