ROSEN RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE MOST BIPARTISAN HOUSE FRESHMEN IN THE 115th CONGRESS
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- This week, a new report by Quorum Analytics ranked Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) 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.
Every bill Rosen has introduced herself has been co-sponsored by at least one Republican lawmaker, and more than 200 of the bills and resolutions Rosen has co-sponsored also have at least one Republican co-sponsor. Rosen is one of the most active members of the House freshman class in terms of bills introduced.
“Since coming to Congress, I’ve consistently made it a priority to reach across the aisle on issues where both parties can find common ground,” said Rosen. “At a time of increasing political division and partisan gridlock, I’m proud of the work I’ve been able to do with colleagues from both parties to make progress and solve problems on behalf of Nevada’s hardworking families.”
BACKGROUND: Rosen is a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, which is made up of an equal number of Democrats and Republicans in the House. Rosen serves on the Problem Solvers Caucus's Infrastructure Working Group and helped roll out a blueprint for rebuilding America's infrastructure last month.
Two bipartisan bills introduced by Rosen, the Defend Israel Act and the Securing the Electric Grid to Protect Military Readiness Act, were signed into law last year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Rosen has also introduced two bipartisan STEM education bills, the Building Blocks of STEM Act and the Code Like a Girl Act. Both bills were combined and passed by the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee with strong bipartisan support in November. This week, Rosen introduced a bipartisan bill to reauthorize key programs that provide outreach and services to homeless veterans.
