May 4, 2022 | Press Releases

Washington, DC – The Lugar Center and the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University this week released their new Bipartisan Index (BPI) rankings for 2021.

U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-39)’s score based on her record in Congress ranks her the most bipartisan freshman, top 10 most bipartisan House Republican and 17th most bipartisan member of the House of Representatives.

“I came to Congress to bring some common sense to Washington, break through the partisan gridlock and get things done. I’m proud that my record in Congress shows my commitment to deliver results for Southern California communities, with more than a dozen bills out of the House,” said Kim. “I’ll continue to find common ground with my colleagues on both sides of the political aisle while sticking to my conservative principles and holding the Biden administration accountable.”

In May 2021, data by Quorum Analytics reported by Axios also ranked Rep. Kim as the most bipartisan freshman member of Congress.

About the Bipartisan Index Score:

According to the Lugar Center, the Bipartisan Index is based on a formula applied uniformly to all members that considers both the absolute numbers of bipartisan bills sponsored and co-sponsored and the percentage of such bills in a member’s portfolio. It excludes non-binding resolutions and ceremonial bills. It also includes a metric that gives members credit for the number of bipartisan co-sponsors on their sponsored bills. The Index uses a historical standard based on 29 years of data to compare current members to historical averages. No subjective judgments are made about individual members or bills.
