Rep. Joyce joins bipartisan group

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: February 18, 2013

U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce is continuing his effort at bipartisan cooperation.

Joyce, R-Russell Township, has joined the United Solutions Caucus, a bipartisan group of freshman Congressional members committed to working together to find common ground.

"I know we won't always agree on everything, but that's not going to stop me from finding common-sense solutions that both Republicans and Democrats can get behind," Joyce said in a news release. "I'm here to work for the people of Northeast Ohio and that means considering all ideas that will help create jobs and grow the economy."

Joyce is among 30 freshman who have joined the United Solutions Caucus, a group that meets on a regular basis. It was founded by U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican from North Carolina, and Rep. Patrick Murphy, a Democrat from Florida.

Joyce, who replaced retired U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette in representing the 14th District that includes northern Summit County, was among the Congressional members who sat next to a Democratic member during the State of the Union address as a show of bipartisanship.
