Rubio Ranked Third Most Effective Senator

Mar 21, 2023 | Comunicados de Prensa

The Center for Effective Lawmaking, an initiative of the University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University, released its Legislative Effectiveness Scores for the 117th Congress. The non-partisan analysis ranked U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) as the third most effective senator overall and the most effective Republican on international affairs and environmental issues.

  • “There is a lot that happens in Congress that the media doesn’t care about because it doesn’t generate ratings or clicks. I am going to keep focused on the things that matter and do what I can to help real people in Florida and all across the country.”  – Senator Rubio

Thirteen Rubio bills became law in 2022, including legislation to provide health care to veterans suffering from exposure to toxic burn pits and a bill to address harmful algal blooms in South Florida. The Center for Effective Lawmaking noted that Rubio “continued to appear among the top-10 most effective Republican lawmakers in the Senate, despite not holding the same institutional advantages (such as committee chairs).” 

  • “Although…some of this [Congress’] bipartisan success may be attributed to Republican moderates scoring particularly well, examples such as conservative Sen. Rubio suggest the possibility of a successful lawmaking path for all members of the minority party.” – Center for Effective Lawmaking

Rubio received a similar ranking for the 116th Congress and a non-partisan analysis produced by GovTrack ranked him as the second top Senate leader in 2020 and 2019. In January, Rubio released a report detailing his legislative accomplishments in 2022 and the landmark laws he wrote during his second term.
