Transition UPDATE!

Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez has been Elected Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus

Congresswoman Nydia M. Velazquez (D-N.Y.) was elected by her peers in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) to lead the group for the 111th Congress. As Chair of the CHC, the Congresswoman is committed to increase opportunities for the nation’s 47 million Hispanics.

“It is an honor to have been selected by my colleagues as Chair the Congressional Hispanic Caucus,” Congresswoman Velazquez said. “With their rapid growth, increasing purchasing power and political influence, this is both an exciting and critical time for Latinos.”

Since being elected to Congress in 1992, Congresswoman Velazquez has been an active member of the Caucus, chairing the Economic Development Task Force as well as holding the position of Vice Chair. Her leadership and advocacy stretches outside the CHC to include serving as Chair of the House Small Business Committee.
