SYRACUSE, NY – Congressman John Katko today (Jan. 15) joined No Labels, a bipartisan congressional problem solvers group.
The group’s membership consists of Democrats and Republicans from both the House and Senate who meet regularly to build trust across the aisle and to find common ground on issues before Congress.
“I have a responsibility to serve the people of my district and I am committed to working in a bipartisan manner to achieve success for Central New York,” Katko said. “That means departing from the partisan political battles and instead, facilitating a conversation across the aisle to get things done in Washington, regardless of political ideology.”
The congressional group currently has more than 70 members and is part of a larger, national grassroots movement of Democrats, Republicans and independents dedicated to a new politics of problem solving.
“Representative Katko has shown a firm commitment to problem solving,” said Bill Galston, a co-founder of No Labels. “It is this kind of leadership, coupled with the creation of a National Strategic Agenda, that is going to help us solve some of the big issues we’re facing as a country.”
“I firmly believe this group can help end the partisan divide and allow us to work towards common ground to grow our economy, fix our healthcare system, balance our budget, and move America towards energy independence,” Katko said.
In the 114th Congress, Rep. Katko has already signed on as an original cosponsor to a number of bipartisan bills, including a bill to repeal the Medical Device Tax.
Katko represents the 24th Congressional District, which includes Onondaga, Cayuga, Wayne, and Oswego counties.
