Neguse Named to the Majority Leader Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity
Washington, D.C.— Today, Congressman Joe Neguse was named to serve as the Vice Chair on Housing and Transportation in the Majority Leader Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity. The Task Force works to bring attention to the need for comprehensive efforts to eradicate poverty.
“I’m honored to join the Majority Leader Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity as the Vice Chair on Housing and Transportation, both issues that are incredibly important to Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District,” said Congressman Neguse. “As our communities expand, and the economy changes, many constituents in my district find it more and more difficult to live where they work. Therefore, it is essential that we fully invest in affordable housing options and infrastructure that meets the needs of our mountain communities and our growing city centers. I look forward to working with the Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity to enact common-sense legislation that invests in our communities and provides opportunity for individuals across Colorado and across our country.”
“These freshman Members will bring new perspectives and new energy to the Task Force as Democrats use our House Majority to tackle some of the nation’s most pressing challenges in combating poverty and expanding opportunity,” Leader Hoyer said.
