U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock, two of the youngest members of Congress, are forming a new bipartisan Future Caucus.
The Hawaii Democrat and Illinois Republican, both 32, hope the Future Caucus will channel a national discussion on technology and innovation to encourage economic growth. The Future Caucus will debut Wednesday morning with a panel event in Washington, D.C., with speakers on new media, technology and Internet start-ups.
Gabbard said by telephone from Washington on Tuesday that the caucus could be “a launching point to being able to really create an economy that encourages that kind of innovative thinking.”
