Royce to Co-Chair Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans

Washington, Dec 22, 2010 

Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) announced today that he will serve as Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans for the 112th Congress. Royce, a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and long-time advocate of close U.S.-India ties, continues in the role he has held in previous Congresses.

"I am honored to serve as a key promoter of U.S.-India relations. As we saw during the consideration of the U.S.-India civil nuclear agreement, Congress plays a key role in building this relationship. I’m looking forward to seeing how strong we can make our economic, military and political ties," said Royce, who helped shepherd the India deal through Congress in 2006.

"The U.S.-India relationship has made great strides since the Caucus started. But nothing can be taken for granted. The Obama Administration has been spotty on relations with India. I don't think it fully appreciates India's importance or the threat it faces. The Caucus will keep pressing to make that case," said Royce.

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of Royce being named Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade in the 112th Congress.

"South Asia will play prominently in the Subcommittee’s agenda: whether it is exposing illicit proliferation networks, the growing menace of regional terror groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba, or growing U.S.-India trade links," concluded Royce.

Upon today’s announcement, one time co-chairman of the Caucus Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) said:

"Ed has been a fantastic leader of the Caucus. I look forward to working with him in the next Congress. He has been an important voice for the relationship and the values that bind the U.S. and India."

Since its inception, the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans has grown from a handful of members to one of the largest on Capitol Hill. Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) was named Democratic Co-Chair of the bipartisan group.
