WASHINGTON — The Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy’s Bipartisanship Index ranked U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, in the top 10 percent of most-bipartisan members of the U.S. House.
Ryan ranked 42nd out of 435 members during the 116th Congress.
“My main priority as an elected official is standing up for Northeast Ohioans, and the letter behind my colleagues’ names is not a factor as long as I’m delivering results for our working families,” Ryan said in a news release. “I’m proud to be named in the top 10 percent of most-bipartisan members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and I look forward to continuing to work together with my colleagues from all political backgrounds as we rebuild our local infrastructure and get Ohioans back to work.”
The McCourt School’s study is a nonpartisan 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.See the full results of the study here.
