WASHINGTON, DC – Results for America (RFA) praised the launch today of the bipartisan Congressional What Works Caucus, which will be led by U.S. Representatives Ben McAdams (D-UT) and Jackie Walorski (R-IN). The new Congressional What Works Caucus will help ensure that federal taxpayer dollars are invested as effectively and efficiently as possible to improve outcomes for children, families and communities nationwide.
The Caucus will bring together Representatives from across the political spectrum to develop and promote results-driven, evidence-based federal legislation that addresses our nation’s biggest challenges. It will also spotlight data-driven local, state, and federal efforts which are helping improve outcomes for residents in Utah, Indiana, and around the country.
Seventy bipartisan local, state, and federal leaders and organizations signed the Invest in What Works Coalition letter expressing their strong support for the new Caucus and praising the Co-Chairs for their “bipartisan work to promote this ‘What Works’ approach to governing, especially during this very divided time in our nation’s history.”
“We commend Representatives McAdams and Walorski for creating the bipartisan Congressional What Works Caucus to help maximize the impact of federal investments and to help federal, state and local leaders accelerate progress on our nation’s most urgent challenges,” CEO and Co-Founder Michele Jolin said. “Results for America is proud to stand with the dozens of federal, state, and local leaders who strongly support this bipartisan Congressional What Works Caucus, which will help ensure that federal funds are invested in evidence-based, results-driven solutions.”
