Report Ranks Moulton in Top 10% of Most Bipartisan Members of Congress

August 28th, 2017

Moulton: “I was elected to make progress for the Sixth District and the country”

Salem, MA – Today, the Office of Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) announced that an analysis of bipartisanship among members of Congress ranked Moulton 34 out of 427 members in the House — in the top 10% of most bipartisan members of Congress. Among House Democrats, Moulton ranked 11th-most bipartisan.

“It’s fundamental to my job that I am a representative for all residents of the Sixth District, regardless of political views,” said Moulton. “I was elected to make progress for the Sixth District and the country. Every day I strive to work across the aisle with my Republican colleagues to make progress for the American people, and I’m proud my record reflects that.”

The Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy have studied bipartisanship among members of the House and Senate and produce a non-partisan ranking of how often each Member of Congress works across party lines. The Bipartisan Index measures the frequency with which a Member co-sponsors a bill introduced by the opposite party and the frequency with which a Member’s own bills attract co-sponsors from the opposite party.

On the report, former Senator Richard Lugar wrote, “A consistently high score is a strong indication that a legislator is prioritizing problem solving and open to working with the other party when possible.”

In his first term, Moulton’s bipartisan Faster Care for Veterans Act was signed into law to modernize veterans’ access to healthcare with technology available to private-sector patients. This year, Moulton’s bipartisan Modernizing Government Travel bill and Global War on Terrorism Memorial Act were two of 55 bills out of over 3,000 introduced in this Congress to be signed into law by the President.
