Rep. Patrick “Pat” Tiberi’s 2016 Report Card

Representative from Ohio's 12th District
Republican
Serving Jan 3, 2001 – Jan 3, 2019


These special statistics cover Tiberi’s record during the 114th Congress (Jan 6, 2015-Jan 3, 2017) and compare him to other representatives also serving at the end of the session. Last updated on Aug 24, 2017. The statistics were updated on Jan 20, 2017 and Aug 24, 2017 to improve how we counted enacted laws. Originally published on Jan 7, 2017.

A higher or lower number below doesn’t necessarily make this legislator any better or worse, or more or less effective, than other Members of Congress. We present these statistics for you to understand the quantitative aspects of Tiberi’s legislative career and make your own judgements based on what activities you think are important.

Keep in mind that there are many important aspects of being a legislator besides what can be measured, such as constituent services and performing oversight of the executive branch, which aren’t reflected here.

The legislator must be the primary sponsor of the bill or joint resolution that was enacted or the primary sponsor of a bill or joint resolution for which at least about one third of its text was incorporated into another bill or joint resolution that was enacted as law, as determined by an automated analysis. While a legislator may lay claim to authoring other bills that became law, these cases are difficult for us to track quantitatively.

 

Powerful Cosponsors

3rd most bills among Ohio Delegation; tied with 1 other

5 of Tiberi’s bills and resolutions in the 114th Congress had a cosponsor who was a chair or ranking member of a committee that the bill was referred to. Getting support from committee leaders on relevant committees is a crucial step in moving legislation forward.

Working with the Senate

4th most bills among All Representatives

The House and Senate often work on the same issue simultaneously by introducing companion bills in each chamber. 12 of Tiberi’s bills and resolutions had a companion bill in the Senate. Working with a sponsor in the other chamber makes a bill more likely to be passed by both the House and Senate.

Those bills were: H.Res. 259: Expressing support for designation of ...; H.Res. 667: Expressing support for designation of ...; H.R. 284: Medicare DMEPOS Competitive Bidding Improvement ...; H.R. 960: To designate the Department of ...; H.R. 1142: To amend the Internal Revenue ...; H.R. 2510: To amend the Internal Revenue ...; H.R. 3580: To establish in the Department ...; H.R. 3608: To amend the Internal Revenue ...; H.R. 4085: Church Plan Clarification Act of ...; H.R. 5082: Investing in Opportunity Act; H.R. 6045: STOP Act of 2016; H.R. 6335: Retirement Security Preservation Act of ...

Additional Notes

The Speaker’s Votes: Missed votes are not computed for the Speaker of the House. According to current House rules, the Speaker of the House is not required to vote in “ordinary legislative proceedings.” In practice this means the Speaker of the House rarely votes but is not considered absent.

Leadership/Ideology: The leadership and ideology scores are not displayed for Members of Congress who introduced fewer than 10 bills, or, for ideology, for Members of Congress that have a low leadership score, as there is usually not enough data in these cases to compute reliable leadership and ideology statistics.

Ranking Members (RkMembs): The chair of a committee is always selected from the political party that holds the most seats in the chamber, called the “majority party”. The “ranking member” (sometimes “RkMembs”) is the title given to the senior-most member of the committee not in the majority party.

Freshmen/Sophomores: Freshmen and sophomores are Members of Congress whose first term (in the same chamber at the end of the 114th Congress) was the 114th Congress (freshmen) or 113th (sophomores). Members of Congress who took office within the last few months of a Congress are considered freshmen in the next Congress as well.
