What is a Caucus?
Caucuses are formally organized and recognized entities formed by Members to direct focus and attention to specific issues. Separate and distinct from congressional committees, caucuses are neither restricted in membership nor tied to the political makeup in the Congress, so any Member can join.

Congressional Modeling and Simulation Caucus
Founded in 2005, the Congressional Modeling and Simulation Caucus serves as a venue for Members of Congress to discuss issues pertaining to modeling & simulation. The caucus showcases modeling and simulation (M & S) initiatives, promotes the M & S industry, and provides a forum to understand the policy challenges facing this growing and versatile technology. Currently, the caucus has a total of 10 Congressional members representing 7 states. To learn more about the Congressional M & S Caucus, please click here.
