HARRISBURG – Rep. Jamie Flick (R-Lycoming/Union) cohosted a press conference unveiling the new Bipartisan “Meet Me in the Middle” Caucus with Reps. Jill Cooper (R-Westmoreland), Rep. Stephen Kinsey (D-Philadelphia), and Rep. Patty Kim (D-Dauphin/Cumberland). The four members will serve as co-chairs of the caucus.
“I am pleased to co-chair the Meet Me in the Middle Caucus, a new bipartisan caucus designed to foster more cooperation between the parties, reduce polarization and find paths to work together to pass commonsense legislation that benefits the people of Pennsylvania,” said Flick.
“Many of our districts, including my district, the 83rd, are considered purple districts as our makeup is not heavily Republican or Democrat. Based on discussions with many people in my district, Pennsylvanians want to see more bipartisanship and they want lawmakers to work together more on the issues that impact them every day, such as rising energy costs, inflation, mental health support and more, so it makes sense we reflect this in Harrisburg. I believe forming this caucus takes a step in the right direction.”
As of the time of the unveiling, the caucus is composed of 27 Democrats and 15 Republicans.
