U.S. Rep. Ed Case said Friday that he is now a member of the U.S. House Problem Solvers Caucus, a bipartisan coalition of U.S. representatives committed “to forging nonpartisan solutions on key national issues.”
The caucus is a coalition of 58 members of the U.S. House equally divided between Democrats and Republicans.
“In our deeply divided and polarized country, it is more critical than ever that we move past the politics of all-or-nothing and forge a better path to just plain solving problems and delivering solutions for all Americans,” Case said in a press release Friday.
He added, “The Problem Solvers Caucus offers that path, starting with open and civil debate on the most difficult issues of our time, and on through to mainstream solutions that will earn the lasting support of most Americans.”
In his first action with the caucus Case will join a delegation heading to the U.S.-Mexico border this weekend “for a first-hand review of the ongoing surge of migrants” and the response from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Comprehensive immigration reform including border security is a Problem Solvers Caucus priority. Other priorities include COVID-19, infrastructure, health care, immigration, criminal justice reform and gun violence reduction.
Case said he hopes to contribute to the caucus’ work in several areas including skyrocketing deficits and debt.
