The New Democrat Coalition is a congressional caucus within the United States Congress made up of centrist Democrats who support an agenda that it describes as "pro-economic growth," "pro-innovation," and "fiscally responsible."[7]

Entering the 117th Congress, the New Democrat Coalition had 93 members, making the second largest ideological caucus in the Democratic Party (after the Congressional Progressive Caucus) and the third largest ideological caucus overall (after the Republican Study Committee).

Overview

The New Democrat Coalition was founded in 1997 by Representatives Cal Dooley (CA), Jim Moran (VA), and Tim Roemer (IN) as a congressional affiliate of the centrist Democratic Leadership Council.[8]

As of 2020, the caucus's issue priorities include addressing climate change, making college more affordable, bipartisanship on deficits and debt, lowering healthcare costs, passing comprehensive immigration reform, modernizing the nation's infrastructure, ensuring access to affordable housing, promoting innovation, and enacting tax reform for the middle class.[9]

In the 116th Congress, the New Democrat Coalition hosts eight task forces: Climate Change, Future of Work, Health Care, Housing, Infrastructure, National Security, Technology, and Trade.[10]
