Americans Abroad Caucus
The Americans Abroad Caucus is a group of legislators in the House of Representatives who, by joining, show they understand and care about their overseas constituents. They value the contribution to their district of these internationally-based citizens and understand the importance of overseas markets.
Launched in February 2007, the Americans Abroad Caucus grew from its early membership of six to over twenty in the last Congress. Members include Republicans and Democrats.
The Caucus has long been chaired by Congresswoman Maloney (D-NY), a long-standing champion of overseas voters, who has since 2017 sponsored legislation, the Commission on Americans Living Abroad Act of 2017 H.R. 2710, to create a bipartisan federal commission to examine how U.S. laws and policies effect overseas Americans which AARO strongly supports and hopes will soon be enacted.
Recently, Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) and Dina Titus (D-NV.) who both bring enthusiasm and dynamism to the recently re-invigorated caucus have accepted to serve as co-chairs.
AARO salutes these Members of Congress and will continue to work with them to bring the concerns of America’s global population to the attention of the U.S. Congress.
AARO supports all their initiatives to improve the lives of Americans abroad, in such areas as the lessening the burdens of taxation, ensuring access to banking, citizenship and voting.
