Puerto Rico’s Senate President will lead NHCSL

Former president of Puerto Rico’s Senate Eduardo Bhatia has been chosen as the new leader of the Washington D.C.-based National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators (NHCSL).

Bhatia, who assumed the presidency of the nonpartisan organization on Saturday, spoke about the importance of eradicating poverty and the power of the Latino vote.

“From the streets of Los Angeles to the public schools of the Bronx, there is no state of the Union where Latinos are not becoming local leaders and responsible politicians,” expressed NHCSL President, Senator Eduardo Bhatia. “NHCSL unites the collective energy, leadership and experiences necessary to shape the future of our country.”

NHCSL has about 400 members and serves as an advocate for more than 52 million Hispanics living across the U.S. After being elected president, Bhatia also expressed interest in strengthening the ties between the U.S. territory and Puerto Ricans living in the U.S. mainland.

“Our time is now, and I look forward to working with the newly elected leadership team to execute this mission,” he added. Bhatia and the newly elected leadership team will serve for two years in NHCSL.
