US Rep Democratic Highland elect Mr Frank Mrvan has been selected by current co-chairman Mr Conor Lamb and other members to co chair the Congressional Steel Caucus, a bipartisan group of more than 100 members of Congress working to promote and advance the interests of the American steel industry and its workers. Mr Mrvan said he’s looking forward to working with other caucus members to advance policy priorities for the American steel industry and to make sure that the industry can continue to be an engine supporting the strength of the country’s national defense and economy.
American Iron and Steel Institute president and CEO Mr Kevin Dempsey said “AISI congratulates Congressman elect Mrvan on being selected as the Co-Chairman of the Congressional Steel Caucus. We welcome his strong commitment to the steel industry and the nearly two million jobs our industry supports, and look forward to working closely with him to promote public policies that will further strengthen the domestic steel industry. Continuing our collaboration with the Caucus, in working with the congressman elect and the rest of the Caucus leadership, is critical to advancing policies that create jobs in steel.”
The Congressional Steel Caucus is a caucus of the United States Congress. Founded in the early 1970s by Representatives John Murtha (D-PA) and Ralph Regula (R-OH), this bi-partisan coalition promotes the health and stability of the domestic steel industry, as well as the interests of its workforce. The House Steel Caucus is extremely active on Capitol Hill, frequently holding policy-forums, media briefings, and hearings regarding issues affecting domestic steel producers and their downstream counterparts.
