Senator Collins Ranked as Most Bipartisan Senator of 116th Congress

Nearly two-thirds of the bills Senator Collins has cosponsored since January 2019 were introduced by members of the opposite party

Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins is the most bipartisan member of the U.S. Senate in the 116th Congress according to a new ranking released by Quorum, a public affairs firm.  Quorum’s analysis was based on the number of bills Senators have cosponsored that were introduced by a member of the opposite party since January 2019.  According to the data, 64 percent of the bills Senator Collins has cosponsored in that time were sponsored by members of the Democratic caucus.

“I have always believed that Congress produces the best legislation when Republicans and Democrats work together,” said Senator Collins.  “Throughout my Senate service, I have consistently reached across the aisle to solve our nation’s most pressing issues and to get things done for the people of Maine.  I am gratified that yet another study has reflected my efforts to encourage compromise and civility in Congress.”

In March, the Lugar Center and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University released a study ranking Senator Collins as the most bipartisan Senator for the sixth year in a row. 

In June, Senator Collins cast her 7,000th consecutive roll call vote – becoming the third Senator in U.S. history to reach this milestone.  She also holds the record for consecutive votes cast by Senators who have never missed a roll call vote. 

In 2017, Senator Collins was ranked as one of the most effective Senators by FiscalNote.
