Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Marc Molinaro (NY-19) today was named the second most bipartisan member of Congress in the first session of the 118th Congress, according to a new report released jointly by the non-partisan Lugar Center and Georgetown's McCourt School. With 436 members of Congress included in this year’s report, Rep. Molinaro ranked above every Democratic lawmaker and all but one Republican.

Following each session of Congress, the Lugar Center and Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy produces a non-partisan, objective ranking of how often each member of Congress works across party lines. More on the methodology, history, and past ratings of the Lugar Center’s Bipartisan Index can be found here.

Rep. Molinaro said, "The families, farmers, and small businesses that I represent in Upstate New York are sick of the division, sick of the gridlock, and sick of being overlooked by people in power. When I came to Congress, I said I would do things differently and work with anyone who is honest and earnest about solving the problems we face. So this is more than just a ranking, it’s validation that my emphasis on good governance is working.”

Dan Diller, Policy Director at the Lugar Center said, “Rep. Marc Molinaro distinguished himself as a bipartisan powerhouse by posting the highest score (4.32149) by a freshman House member in the history of the Bipartisan Index. Though new to the House in 2023, he quickly established bipartisan relationships and a portfolio of bipartisan legislation that lifted him to the second overall ranking in the House.”
