Congresswoman Suzan DelBene
U.S House of Representatives (Washginton State)
Congresswoman Suzan DelBene represents Washington’s 1st Congressional District. First sworn into the House of Representatives on November 13, 2012, DelBene brings a unique voice to the nation’s capital, with over two decades of experience as a successful technology entrepreneur and business leader in the private sector. Her depth of experience and focus on achieving concrete results allows DelBene to break through Congressional gridlock and get things done, earning her praise from the Everett Herald, who called her “the most prolific, effective member of her freshman class.”
Congresswoman DelBene is a strong voice on the House Agriculture Committee for Washington’s farmers and growers. She was the only Member of Congress from Washington State on the bipartisan Farm Bill conference committee, which successfully negotiated a 5-year Farm Bill that was good for farmers and ranchers, preserved nutrition benefits for working families and children. At the start of the 114th Congress, she was named Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Biotechnology, Horticulture, and Research.
Through her role on the House Judiciary Committee, DelBene is at the forefront of issues relating to technology and privacy, and has become a leading voice in the House calling for greater transparency and oversight of the NSA to restore American’s privacy rights. She is also focused on advancing common-sense immigration reform and is a lead sponsor on H.R. 15, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, a comprehensive immigration reform bill with over 200 sponsors.
DelBene was appointed to serve on President Obama’s Export Council, the President’s advisory committee on international trade. She also serves as co-chair of the New Democrat Coalition’s 21st Century Job Skills Working Group, and co-chair of the Women's High Tech Caucus, Internet of Things Caucus, Trademark Caucus, and Aluminum Caucus.
DelBene’s mix of real world experience in the private and public sector gives her a deep understanding of how to build successful businesses and create jobs, implement real fiscal accountability, and adopt policies that provide individuals with access to opportunity.
