Wahington — Yesterday, the Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School announced the 2017 Bipartisan Index Rankings for members of Congress. Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) ranked 5th most bipartisan member of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 115th Congress. The BPI is a non-partisan tool that measures the degree to which Senators and Representatives work across party lines on legislation. Congressman Cuellar stands on the list as the 2nd highest-ranked House Democrat.

“I pride myself on my ability to work with both sides of the aisle to get things done for my constituents,” said Congressman Cuellar. “When Republicans and Democrats put politics aside, we are able to get things done and move our country forward. In the midst of a hyper-partisan era in Washington, I am glad to transcend party lines and pursue commonsense solutions for the American people. Congress is meant to function based on compromise, and I intend to continue to fulfill that promise.”
