    The Americans Abroad Caucus was founded by Rep Carolyn Maloney (D-NY12) and is currently chaired by Rep. Maloney and Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV01).  A recent register of the Americans Abroad Caucus members is here.

    The caucus helps guide us when we have reforms to present, problems that require government support or questions that relate to the federal government.
