Trone Named a Top Bipartisan Member of Congress

July 7th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Today, Congressman David Trone (MD-06) announced that he was named in the top 20% of the 2019 Congressional Bipartisan Index. The Bipartisan Index is produced annually by the Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy and the Lugar Center.


The Index measures how often a Member of Congress introduces bills that obtain co-sponsors from the opposite party. The Index excludes non-binding resolutions and ceremonial bills. Congressman Trone scored 79th out of 437 members of the House of Representatives.


“Before I came to Congress, I was a business owner. Throughout my time in business, I learned that when you put your differences aside and work together, you can find success,” said Congressman David Trone. “I took this lesson with me to Congress, and since I took office, I’ve been actively working across the aisle to make progress on issues like addiction and mental health, broadband, and criminal justice reform. I will continue working across the aisle to get things done for the American people.”


The Lugar Center is a non-profit organization that serves as a platform for debate and analysis of global issues such as global food security, nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction, foreign assistance effectiveness, and more. The Center was founded by former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN).


The McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University is a top-ranked public policy school located in Washington, D.C.


Congressman David Trone was elected to the House of Representatives in November 2018 to serve the 6th District of Maryland, which includes all or part of Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Trone serves on the Education and Labor, Foreign Affairs, and Joint Economic Committees, where he is fighting to make progress on issues that matter to Marylanders, including the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and funding for medical research.

    I don’t care how bipartisan he is, what is important is what has he done for Western Maryland? Has he been here more than three times? Just like the rest of the gerrymandered politicians that represent the western portion of the state.

      What makes you think anybody down state pays any attention to Western MD? Garrett and Allegany Counties contain 1.5% of the state/s population. We just don’t count for much.
