Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Today, US Rep. David Price (NC-04) unveiled a new website for the House Democracy Assistance Commission (HDAC), which is also known as the Dreier-Price Commission. The Dreier-Price Commission, a 16-member panel of US Representatives working to assist emerging democracies in all corners of the globe, was announced earlier this year.

The website will contain regularly updated information on the countries with which the HDAC is presently working and their specific areas of assistance. It also provides the history of the HDAC, including its predecessor organization of the mid-1990s, the Frost-Solomon Task Force.

Price, who is officially the Ranking Member of the commission, was the driving force behind it. He and US Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) co-authored legislation, House Resolution 135, which is based on an earlier bill written by Price. H. Res. 135 established this plan to give parliaments in emerging democracies the guidance and assistance they need to function effectively.

Constituents can access the website at www.hdac.house.gov/.
