The Association of Global Automakers (Global Automakers) officially welcomed the 114th Congressional House Auto Caucus on Capitol Hill Tuesday evening with a kick-off reception that included fellow supporting auto trade groups and industry representatives.
“We are especially honored to welcome Representatives Mike Kelly (PA-03) and Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) into their roles as the new House Auto Caucus co-chairs,” said John Bozzella, president and CEO of Global Automakers. “Their support in helping represent the diverse group of U.S. automakers, suppliers, and dealers that employ thousands of Americans is highly appreciated.”
The House and Senate Auto Caucuses provide a bipartisan forum for Members of Congress to exchange ideas and influence policy on issues that affect the auto industry as a whole, and in turn, the U.S. economy. The 114th House Auto Caucus will help promote a legislative agenda that encourages the innovative work of the industry in developing new technologies to provide safer, more advanced vehicles and increased consumer choice.
“The landscape of the U.S. auto industry of 2015 looks vastly different than it did even 10 years ago,” said Bozzella. “We are excited about the reinvigoration of the House Auto Caucus to help tell this story, and look forward to continuing our work together and supporting their advocacy on our behalf.”
The Association of Global Automakers represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations. We work with industry leaders, legislators, and regulators to create the kind of public policy that improves vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation, and protects our planet. Our goal is to foster a competitive environment in which more vehicles are designed and built to enhance Americans’ quality of life. For more information, visit www.globalautomakers.org.
