WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) announced he was ranked by the Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy as the most bipartisan member of the Ohio delegation and 15th most bipartisan member among all 436 members of the House of Representatives.

“In Congress, members on opposite sides of the aisle come in wearing red or blue jerseys, but we need to take those off and remember to wear our red, white, and blue jerseys for America,” said Congressman Joyce. “Bipartisanship is the cornerstone for effective governing. Since coming to Congress, I have recognized that reality and made a concerted effort to work with my colleagues across the aisle to deliver results back home.”

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 30 years of data to compare current members to historical averages. No subjective judgments are made about individual members or bills.
