U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-1st, has announced that the new chair of the Congressional Steel Caucus will be Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa.

Visclosky will remain an active participant in and steadfast supporter of the Steel Caucus’ mission.

“I am incredibly fortunate to have been on the staff of Congressman Adam Benjamin Jr. during the formation of the Congressional Steel Caucus, and since that time to also have served as Vice Chairman and Chairman,” Visclosky said. “The Caucus has always been an open and nonpartisan organization dedicated to supporting our steelworkers and the American steel industry. The Caucus has always welcomed the ideas and initiatives of new Members of Congress, and in that tradition, I am happy today to announce that Congressman Conor Lamb will be Chairman of the Caucus during the 116th Congress. I look forward to the new leadership and voices of Congressman Lamb and Vice Chairmen Congressman Bost and Congressman Crawford.”

“America produces the world's best steel, and southwestern Pennsylvania produces some of the world's best steelworkers,” Lamb said. “I'm excited for the opportunity to lead this bipartisan group and work with my colleagues from both parties to help strengthen the steel industry to protect American jobs and American workers.”
