The New Democrat Coalition is a Congressional Member Organization within the United States Congress made up of Democrats who support an agenda that the organization describes as moderate and pro-growth. A July 2009 Press release described the organization as "the largest moderate coalition in the U.S. House of Representatives", announced the election of Representative Joseph Crowley (New Yorkmarker) as the Coalition's Chair and counted 68 Members in the House of Representatives. In January 2009, at the end of the 110th Congress, there were 59 members listed on Chair Representative Ellen Tauscher's roster. The Senate New Democrat Coalition counted 21 members in the Senate in August 2002, 15 of whom remain in the Senate as of the beginning of the 111th Congress.

Overview

The New Democrat Coalition was founded in 1997 by Representatives Cal Dooley (Californiamarker), Jim Moran (Virginiamarker) and Timothy J. Roemer (Indianamarker) as a congressional affiliate of the avowedly centrist Democratic Leadership Council, whose members, including former President Bill Clinton, call themselves "New Democrats." As of July 2009, the House New Democrats are chaired by Representative Joseph Crowley (New Yorkmarker), with Vice-Chairs Representatives Melissa Bean (Illinoismarker), Ron Kind (Wisconsinmarker), Allyson Schwartz (Pennsylvaniamarker) and Adam Smith (Washingtonmarker), who also serves as chair of the group's political action committee.

The Senate New Democrat Coalition was founded in the spring of 2000 by Senators Evan Bayh (Indianamarker), Bob Graham (Floridamarker), Mary Landrieu (Louisianamarker), Joe Lieberman (Connecticutmarker), and Blanche Lincoln (Arkansasmarker).

The NDC has worked to craft and pass legislation, including Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) for the People's Republic of Chinamarker, fast track Trade Promotion Authority, digital signatures, and H-1B visa reform and continues to work on matters such as privacy, broadband, expanding e-learning opportunities and making government more accessible and efficient through the use of technology. Many in the Democratic Party's left-wing criticize the group, however, accusing it of ignoring social justice and the poor.

The NDC is a member of the Alliance of Democrats international; the Democratic Party as a whole does not participate in any internationals on account of its political divisions, but does permit its affiliated organizations to do so.
