Rep. Trone Appointed to Joint Economic Committee

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman David Trone, Representative from Maryland’s 6th District, released the following statement regarding his appointment by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the Joint Economic Committee:

“As a former businessman, I know how to create jobs with good pay and good benefits,” said Congressman David Trone. “I will bring this private sector experience to the Joint Economic Committee to fight for the American worker and an economy that works for everyone – not just the wealthy.”

The Joint Economic Committee is a bicameral, bipartisan committee tasked with reviewing economic conditions and advising improvements to economic policy. The President’s Council of Economic Advisors and the Joint Economic Committee are the two primary economic advisory bodies.

Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone also serves on the Education and Labor and the Foreign Affairs Committee, where he is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.
