The bipartisan Congressional Taiwan Caucus is the second largest Congressional Member Organization in the United States Congress with 137 members. The caucus focuses exclusively on improving American–Taiwanese relations.

Its counterpart in the Senate is the Senate Taiwan Caucus.[1]

History[edit]

The caucus was founded on April 9, 2002. Congressmen Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Steve Chabot (R-OH), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and Robert Wexler (D-FL) were the founding co-chairs.[2][3]
