In a Do-Nothing Congress, Rob Bishop Got Stuff Done

A new analysis of the 113th Congress finds Rep. Rob Bishop on a very short list of members who were able to get legislation acted on.

The Huffington Post calculated “efficiency ratings” for each member of Congress based on the number of bills a member was able to get out of committee in relation to the total amount of legislation they sponsored.

Bishop scores a 71% rating for having 12 of his 17 bills pass out of committee.

Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah): 71 percent efficiencyOne example: Ensuring Public Involvement in the Creation of National Monuments Act. There appears to be a beef over President Obama’s “unilaterally” creating national monuments. The struggle continues.
