WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-WV) joined Chief Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) in launching the Congressional Appalachian Caucus. The Appalachian Caucus will focus on energy, healthcare, transportation, and broadband policies for people who live in Appalachia and surrounding regions.
"Appalachia is a beautiful part of the United States,” said Congresswoman Miller. “Abundant with natural resources, we supply America with energy resources, agriculture, and the hardest working people in the country. I am honored to be a co-chair of the Appalachian Caucus and advocate for better health care access, broadband, transportation, and jobs. We are a strong people and I’m looking forward to this caucus bringing forth solutions and opportunities for all of Appalachia.”
I am excited to form the Appalachian Caucus and honored to lead it as co-chair in the 118th Congress," said Chief Deputy Whip Reschenthaler. "This caucus will serve as a voice for the small towns in Appalachia who have been overlooked and left behind. I look forward to working with my colleagues to promote policies that will create jobs, strengthen families, protect senior citizens, and generate economic growth throughout the region."
Appalachia includes 13 states and spans across 423 counties with 26.3 million residents.
