Curbelo Named 11th Most Bipartisan Member of Congress
Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) was named the 11th most bipartisan Member of Congress, according to The Lugar Center and Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy Bipartisan Index, a non-partisan ranking of how often each Member of Congress works across party lines.
For the entirety of the 114th Congress, Curbelo ranked 11 out of 427 Members of Congress. Scores are based on bipartisan sponsorships and bipartisan co-sponsorships.
“Since I first came to Washington, bipartisanship has always been an essential part of my legislative strategy,” said Curbelo. “From introducing bills to grant legal permanent residency to Venezuelan refugees and reforming assistance programs for Cubans arriving in the U.S., to protecting our coastal communities from foreign oil spills and launching the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, I’ve worked hard with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to build support behind issues that are important to our community.
“By forming bipartisan coalitions with Members from the South Florida delegation, I was able to lead efforts to rehabilitate our waste water infrastructure, provide funding certainty to long-term transportation projects, and modernize the nation’s Air Traffic Control system,” Curbelo added. “Now more than ever we need Members of Congress who are willing to reach across the aisle and work together to find common ground to address the challenges facing our constituents. I’m honored to have these efforts recognized, and I look forward to continue working with Republicans and Democrats to provide a better future for our communities and the country.”
