ROSEN-BACKED BREAK THE GRIDLOCK RESOLUTION INTRODUCED IN THE HOUSE
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03), an original member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, released the following statement after helping introduce the Caucus’ “Break the Gridlock” House Resolution (H.Res.1090) last week.
“Partisanship and gridlock have gripped Washington for far too long, which is why I’m proud to be an original member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus,” said Rosen. “This caucus has already made progress fighting the opioid epidemic, making recommendations on infrastructure improvement, and coming together to support solutions to fix our health care system. Our new proposed rules would make Congress more responsive to the American people and give priority consideration to bipartisan legislation, which is why I’m proud to support this resolution."
BACKGROUND: The Problem Solvers Caucus is made up of an equal number of Democrats and Republicans in the House. Rosen serves on the Problem Solvers Caucus' Infrastructure Working Group and helped put forward a bipartisan blueprint for rebuilding America's infrastructure. The “Break the Gridlock” House Resolution was introduced last week and can be found here.
A report by Quorum Analytics ranked Rosen as one of the most bipartisan freshmen members of the House of Representatives in the 115th Congress. According to the report, 41 percent of the legislation Rosen has co-sponsored was introduced by a Republican, making her the fifth-most bipartisan freshman member in the House. Earlier this year, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce awarded Rosen its Spirit of Enterprise Award for her support for pro-growth policies in the first session of the 115th Congress, making her one of only 13 Democrats in Congress to receive the award this year.
