Washington D.C.—A new bipartisan index from Georgetown University McCourt School’s Lugar Center ranked Congressman Joe Neguse as the most bipartisan member of the Colorado Congressional Delegation for the second year in a row. He is also ranked in the top 10% of all lawmakers, at number 41. View the full ranking here. 

Congressman Neguse has also been ranked one of the top 10 most effective lawmakers by University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University’s non-partisan Center for Effective Lawmaking, and ranked by GovTrack for having the 2nd most bills of any lawmaker signed into law in the 116th Congress. 

“I full-heartedly believe we must work to turn down the temperature in our politics,” said Congressman Joe Neguse. “I’ve sought to do that at a community level, by launching our first-of-its-kind service town hall initiative, to bring community members of every background and political persuasion together to work together for the common good of our community. In Congress, I’ve worked in a bipartisan manner with my Republican colleagues, inviting them to our state to see first-hand the Colorado experience and working to craft legislation wherever we can find agreement. We believe our willingness to work with anyone has helped secure victories for our communities, by having 9 bills enacted into law, the 2nd most of any House office, and helping us solve the challenges our district and our state are facing.” 

The Lugar Center’s 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.
