LaLota Ranked High on Bipartisanship List

US Rep. Nick LaLota, R-Amityville, has been named one of the most bipartisan members of Congress by the Lugar Center and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University.

The  Bipartisan Index (BPI) rankings for 2023 measures the degree to which senators and representatives work across party lines on legislation.

“I promised Suffolk County residents that I would always prioritize results over rhetoric. As a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus and the For Country Caucus, I’ve championed collaboration and common sense,” said LaLota.  “In my first year, I’ve had four of my bills pass the House with bipartisan support, secured over $150 million in federal funding for Suffolk County, and supported key legislation to improve the lives of Americans. I have worked tirelessly to find common ground and deliver for Long Islanders every day. I will continue to work with anyone who shares my commitment to putting our country ahead of party.”

Of the members ranked, LaLota was the 65th most bipartisan member of the House and the 15th most bipartisan freshman of either party.

The Index is based on a formula applied uniformly to all members.
