Reps. Ro Khanna, D-California, and Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Illinois, have been appointed to high visibility leadership roles on two committees in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Khanna and Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Florida, will serve as co chairs of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans, which is devoted to strengthening the India-U.S. relationship. During the previous session, the Caucus, in which Reps. Brad Sherman D-California and Steve Chabot R-Ohio served as co-chairs, had 139 members. It is one of the largest country-specific caucuses in the House. Rep. Ami Bera, D-California, formerly served as co-chair.

“A strong relationship with India is critical for our economy and national security. It is an honor to serve alongside my colleague Rep. Waltz as co-chair of the India Caucus. Serving in this role is especially meaningful to me as one of the first Indian Americans to lead the caucus as well as the only representative of an Asian American majority district in the continental United States,” said Khanna in a press statement Feb. 6.
