Report: All 4 of LI's House reps place in top 40 among colleagues for bipartisan efforts
A recent report that tracks the bipartisan efforts of the U.S. House of Representatives placed all four of Long Island's reps among the top 40.
The report, released by the Lugar Center and Georgetown University, scored 437 of the members of the House of Representatives in the 116th Congress. It excluded newly elected members, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
Retiring Rep. Pete King took the No. 3 spot on the list, the highest among Long Island representatives, and second statewide (behind John Katko, 24th District).
Rep. Lee Zeldin took the No. 12 spot, Rep. Kathleen Rice ranked No. 26 and Rep. Tom Suozzi was No. 37.
Eleven New York representatives in total made up the top 50. Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick took the top spot while Alabama Rep. Gary Palmer placed last.
The Lugar Center also released rankings for the Senate -- Sen. Chuck Schumer isn't included because he is the Senate Minority Leader. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ranked 65th of the 98 on the list.
