Congressman Neguse Recognized For Introducing Most Legislation Of Any Freshman Lawmaker & Having Most Bills Signed Into Law

According to Gov Track USA, Congressman Joe Neugse completed his first year in Congress as the most productive member of the freshman class. Congressman Neguse introduced 30 bills in 2019 — more than any other freshman lawmaker in the House during the 116th Congress. He also introduced more bills that actually became law than any member of Colorado’s House delegation. In total, three of his bills were signed into law, including legislation to fund rural schools, protect Colorado’s wildlife, and expand public lands.

“It’s an honor to serve the 2nd district and the state of Colorado, and I’m proud of how our office hit the ground running,” Neguse said. “There is a lot of work to be done for our great state and Coloradans deserve to have their issues solved as quickly as possible.”

Neguse also had the best attendance record of all members of the Colorado delegation at 99.9%, and wrote the 2nd most laws of any freshman lawmaker.

Neguse represents Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, and is a member of House Leadership as a representative of the freshman class, as well as Vice Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law.
