Stutzman joins caucus on U.S.-Swiss relations

Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, has joined the Friends of Switzerland Caucus.

“I have the honor of serving Berne’s vibrant and historic Swiss-American community and I’m proud to be a member of the Friends of Switzerland Caucus,” Stutzman said on his House website.

“From the mid-nineteenth century when Adams County first welcomed Swiss immigrants to today as the citizens of Berne live by hard work and Hoosier values, our community is proud of its rich heritage and lasting traditions. As a legislator and a descendent of Swiss ancestors and with relatives in Adams County, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the caucus to encourage and strengthen Swiss-American relations.”

The group was formed in 2003 by then Reps. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis. Both are now members of the Senate. The caucus includes six senators and 35 House members, including Reps. André Carson, D-7th, and Peter Visclosky, D-1st.
