The bipartisan Hungarian Caucus, originally established in 2003, provides a strong voice for Hungarian-American issues in Congress and seeks to promote constructive dialogue between Hungary and the 1.5 million Hungarian Americans in the US.
The Congressional Hungarian-American Caucus was established by Hungarian American Congressman, late Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA) in 2003, and had been chaired by Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) since February 2008 and Steve LaTourette (R-OH). The leadership of Congressmen LaTourette and Kucinich was instrumental in strengthening Hungarian American relations.
With Reps. Kucinich and LaTourette’s retirement, Representatives Andy Harris (R-MD), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) and David Joyce (R-OH) as new Co-Chairs announced the reconstitution of the Hungarian-American Caucus in the 113th Congress which currently also includes:
