WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) announced he was ranked as the 16th most bipartisan Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives and the 31st most bipartisan member among all 435 Representatives on both sides of the aisle. These rankings cover legislative activity for 2021. The previous year, Joyce was ranked as the 22nd most bipartisan Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives and the 44th most bipartisan member among all 437 Representatives, both Republican and Democrat alike. 

“It’s important to remember that as Americans, we have a lot more unifying us than dividing us,” said Joyce. “I’m proud to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in an effort to end Washington’s dysfunction and find the common ground needed to create serious, long-lasting solutions to the challenges facing our country. We can’t allow the act of reaching across the aisle to become more toxic than the failed policies hurting the American people.”

“The Bipartisan Index provides an important indicator of the state of congressional collaboration. While it is disappointing that collaboration has declined over the last year, I am encouraged by the lawmakers who are steadfastly committed to working across differences to advance the common good,” said Maria Cancian, Dean of the McCourt School of Public Policy.

The Bipartisan Index measures how often a member of Congress introduces bills that attract co-sponsors from the other party, and how often they in turn co-sponsor a bill introduced from across the aisle. The Bipartisan Index is based on a formula applied uniformly to all members that considers both the absolute numbers of bipartisan bills sponsored and co-sponsored and the percentage of such bills in a member’s portfolio. It excludes non-binding resolutions and ceremonial bills. It also includes a metric that gives members credit for the number of bipartisan co-sponsors on their sponsored bills. The Index uses a historical standard based on 29 years of data to compare current members to historical averages. No subjective judgments are made about individual members or bills.
