U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-2nd, has been appointed co-chairman of the National Security Policy Task Force of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of moderate and conservative Democrats.
Task forces develop policy for the coalition, which says its agenda is to produce bipartisan, commonsense solutions that move the country forward.
Van Drew will co-chair the task force with Rep. Kendra Horn of Oklahoma. They will focus on issues that promote strong and smart national security for the United States, an announcement from Van Drew’s office said.
“Our government has no more important responsibility than protecting the safety and security of our nation and our people, both at home and abroad, and this task force is committed to pursuing policies that better protect the American people and our allies,” Van Drew said.
