Informal Congressional Groups and Member Organizations, 106th Congress: An Informational Directory

Order Code RL30288 CRS Report for Congress Received through the CRS Web Informal Congressional Groups and Member Organizations, 106th Congress: An Informational Directory August 20, 1999 Sula P. Richardson Analyst in American National Government Government and Finance Division Congressional Research Service ˜ The Library of Congress ABSTRACT This report compiles information on 185 informal congressional groups and Member organizations commonly known as caucuses and identifies 75 of the groups that were registered with the Committee on House Administration as congressional Member organizations (CMOs) as of May 17, 1999. This report will be updated at least once during the second session of the 106th Congress. Informal Congressional Groups and Member Organizations, 106th Congress: An Informational Directory Summary Informal congressional groups and Member organizations are voluntary alliances of Members of Congress that operate without direct recognition in chamber rules or line item appropriations (unlike formal leadership and party groups). These informal groups and Member organizations often are collectively referred to as caucuses. Some groups have chosen terms such as coalition, ad hoc task force or working group in naming themselves. At least 185 informal groups and congressional Member organizations are operating in the 106th Congress. Of those 185 groups, 75 were registered with the Committee on House Administration as congressional Member organizations as of May 17, 1999. In the House of Representatives, the term congressional Member organization (CMO) refers to House and bicameral informal groups that meet the description and the registration requirements in regulations adopted by the Committee on House Administration on June 22, 1999. These regulations became effective August 1, 1999. Registration as a CMO is required for any organization of House Members who join together to formally share official resources in pursuit of common legislative objectives. The Senate has no comparable registration requirement for its informal groups. This report lists the following data for each group: chair, president, sponsor(s) or coordinator(s) (as appropriate); key staffer(s); telephone number(s); approximate number of members (if available); and year organized. Questions regarding the status, operations, organization, and propriety of informal groups should be directed to the following committees: House Committee on House Administration; House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct; Senate Committee on Rules and Administration; and Senate Committee on Ethics.

The Committee on House Administration listed the requirements for registration as a CMO, and other provisions related to CMO 1 The non-official status and informal nature of some groups make it virtually impossible always to know how many of them there are. Sometimes founding Members formally announce a group’s establishment in a press release, a news article, or a newsletter, or in the Congressional Record. A group may function for some time, however, before its existence is known to those outside its own membership. By the same token, the abolition of a group may not be announced or readily determined. (See the appendix.) 2 Prior to the 104th Congress (1995-1997), the terms congressional Member organizations (CMOs), informal groups, and congressional caucuses were virtually synonymous, referring to all informal Member groups. Currently, however, "congressional Member organization" refers solely to an informal group which registers with the Committee on House Administration and which meets the description and the reporting requirements set forth in the committee’s regulations of August 1, 1999. Formerly, informal groups could gain recognition as legislative service organizations (LSOs), with special administrative arrangements accorded groups on that basis. On January 4, 1995, the House agreed to a provision prohibiting the establishment or continuation of LSOs as defined and authorized in the 103rd Congress (Rules of the House, H. Res. 6, Congressional Record, daily edition, vol. 141, January 4, 1995, p. H30). Former LSOs were allowed to convert their operations into informal groups, and they could choose to become CMOs by registering with the Committee on House Oversight (now named Committee on House Administration). 3 Data reflect the number of groups registered as CMOs as of May 17, 1999, but that number is subject to frequent change. For example, based upon information obtained after May 17, 1999, from printed sources or from telephone interviews with staff, three CMOs—the Constitution Liberty Caucus, the Narcotics Abuse and Control Caucus, and the Peace Accord Monitoring Group—are now inactive, while another group—the New Democrat Coalition—has become a CMO. Updated lists of CMOs may be obtained from the Committee on House Administration. CRS-2 funding, resources, and communications in regulations that became effective on August 1, 1999. Under the regulations, CMOs must register with the Committee on House Administration and they must provide the group’s name, statement of purpose, officers, and employee(s) designated to work on issues related to the CMO. Further, the regulations stipulate that a CMO: ! ! ! ! ! ! has no separate corporate or legal identity; is not an employing authority; may not be assigned separate office space; may not use the frank, (nor may a Member lend his or her frank to a CMO); may not have independent web pages; and may not accept goods, funds or services from private organizations or individuals to support the CMO.4 At least 110 informal groups are not registered as CMOs. Twenty-five of these groups are Senate entities; the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration has no comparable recognition or registration requirement for Senate informal groups. The remaining House and bicameral informal Member groups do not formally share official resources in pursuit of their common legislative objectives. As such, CMO registration is not necessary for these organizations. How to Use This Directory This compilation of congressional Member organizations comprises the following four sections: six tables of information about currently active groups; one table listing groups about which information is not available at this time; an appendix listing groups that no longer exist or operate; and a keyword index of organizations. Currently Active Groups Section one comprises six annotated lists of organizations: (1) House informal partisan groups; (2) House informal bipartisan groups; (3) Senate informal partisan groups; (4) Senate informal bipartisan groups; (5) bicameral informal partisan groups; and (6) bicameral informal bipartisan groups. These six lists of Member organizations present the following information for each group: ! ! ! ! ! ! 4 Name; Chair, president, sponsor(s), or coordinator(s) (as appropriate); Key staffer(s); Telephone number(s); Approximate number of members (where available); and Year organized. Regulations adopted by the Committee on House Administration on June 22, 1999, became effective August 1, 1999. See: Congressional Member Organizations in Members’ Congressional Handbook—1999, p. 45-46. CRS-3 Several groups have more than one chair or sponsor. In some such instances, the tables list the chairs and sponsors through whose offices the groups’ business is coordinated. The organizations in each house are listed alphabetically. In the names of organizations, words not part of the official title are in brackets to help identify the scope or membership of the organization, or to identify the chamber from which its members are drawn. (Words in brackets were not taken into account in the alphabetical arrangement of the groups.) Informal groups which were registered (as of May 17, 1999) with the House Administration Committee as congressional Member organizations are identified in the detailed lists with the abbreviation CMO enclosed in brackets beside their names (i.e., [CMO]). Groups About Which Information Is Not Available Section two (Table 7) lists groups that could not be confirmed (through telephone interviews with staff or from available printed sources) as still operational; nor could it be determined that these groups were defunct. The point at which information could not be confirmed, or at which information became unavailable, is provided. Inoperative or Inactive Groups The appendix identifies groups that congressional staff or published sources described as defunct, inoperative, or inactive since 1985. It also lists the year(s) during which each group became defunct, inactive, or inoperative. Keyword Index Section four is a keyword index of Member organizations. The index is designed to help the reader locate organizations by subject matter and recognize similar or parallel groups in the two houses of Congress. The index gives the pages that provide information on the organizations. Data for this compilation were obtained directly from the staffs of the various groups, materials supplied by the groups, and from the Leadership Directories, Inc.'s, Congressional Yellow Book.

These groups could not be confirmed (through telephone interviews with staff or from available printed sources) as still operational. Usually, such confirmation could not be made because (1) the group's primary members (i.e., its sponsors, officers, or coordinators) were no longer serving in Congress; (2) the group's reorganizational meeting (for the current Congress) had not yet been held; (3) the issue(s) around which the group was organized has (have) been resolved, altered, or reprioritized; or (4) a decision of whether the group would continue operating had not been made. For these and other instances in which the author was unable to obtain confirmation from a Member or staff about a group's status, the group is listed here. b. The year(s) shown is (are) the first point at which the author was unable to obtain authoritative information on each group's status. In those instances when information became unavailable at some point during a Congress, the author has shown the two years of that particular Congress. c.
