Press Release

WASHINGTON – In step with her commitment to working across the aisle to deliver for her district, Congresswoman Elaine Luria (VA-02) today announced joining the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus as she works with Democrats and Republicans to find solutions to America’s most pressing problems.

Co-chaired by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ-05) and Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY-23), more than 40 members of the Problem Solvers Caucus have worked together to find bipartisan agreement on the toughest issues facing Congress, including health care, immigration policy, and infrastructure.

Rep. Luria, a 20-year Navy veteran, is among the freshman legislators to join.

“People in the Navy come from a variety of backgrounds and have different points of view, but we worked together to accomplish the mission at hand,” Congresswoman Luria said. “I am proud to take that same approach to Congress, and that’s why I’m so glad to join the Problem Solvers Caucus – the title of our bipartisan group defines exactly what we were elected to do.”

“Congresswoman Elaine Luria is someone who understands that solutions to big problems take a lot of work,” Congressman Gottheimer (D-NJ-05) said. “I am excited to work with Congresswoman Luria and the rest of the new members of the Problem Solvers Caucus to bring everyone to the table and find commonsense solutions to the biggest issues in our country like fixing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, lowering the cost of healthcare, and taking care of our veterans and those serving in our armed forces.”

“Elaine came to Congress to help the hardworking people in Virginia,” Congressman Reed (R-NY-23) said. “She isn’t here to play partisan politics, but instead came to sit down and have conversations with anyone who will listen about improving the lives of the American people we all care about. A true ‘Problem Solver,’ we look forward to working alongside her.”

Congresswoman Elaine Luria represents Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. She serves on the House Armed Services Committee, where she is the Vice Chair of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, and the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, where she serves as Chair of the Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs Subcommittee.
