I am pleased to have been named Vice Chair Designate of the Joint Economic Committee for the 116th Congress. I look forward to working with members of our committee, from the House and the Senate and from both parties, to analyze the economy and to provide economic information to our colleagues and the public.

There are major economic challenges facing the country – from stagnant wages and a stubborn gender pay gap to rising prescription drug prices and the growing costs of climate change. Our job at the JEC is to promote greater understanding and awareness of these and other economic issues. I’m excited to lead the Democratic Congress in this important work.

Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney
