Study Identifies Most Partisan House Committees
R Street Institute Vice President Kevin Kosar told The Epoch Times on Aug. 27 that Ryan’s metrics are “greatly affected by votes taken on particularly salient issues, like Democrats’ headline-grabbing H.R. 1 legislation. Obviously, the committee’s work is much broader than just that.”
Kosar was referring to the “For the People Act of 2019,” the giant proposal introduced by Democrats after they regained the House majority in the 2018 election. The proposal contains numerous proposals strongly favored by liberal Democrats and fiercely opposed by conservative Republicans.
Kosar said he believes “the House Administration Committee tends to work constructively across the aisle on much of the low salience work, such as reviewing the internal operations of the House’s various administrative units.”
