A survey from the nonpartisan Center for Effective Lawmaking found Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to be among the least effective members of Congress.
According to information from Congress.gov, Ocasio-Cortez did introduce 21 bills considered “substantive” during her first term, but none of them got any action in committees, floor votes, or passage into law.
“It’s clear that she was trying to get her legislative agenda moving and engage with the lawmaking process. But she wasn’t as successful as some other members were — even among [other] freshmen — at getting people to pay attention to her legislation,” center director Alan Wiseman said.
Ocasio-Cortez ranked last in effectiveness of the 19 House Democrats from New York, and 230th out of 240 overall House members.
