Two members of Michigan’s congressional delegation have caught the eye of number-crunchers in Washington, D.C.
Both U.S. Sen. Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Twp.) and U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Rochester) have been busy during the 116th Congress, according to the August recess report analyzing legislation and social media from Quorum, a D.C.-based data company.
Peters has introduced 39 bills this session, making him No. 7 for senators in the 116th Congress. He also has co-sponsored 30% of bills for the opposite party. He’s tied with U.S. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) as the Democrat with the third-highest percentage in this metric.
For U.S. House freshmen, Stevens has the distinction of being the seventh-most frequent tweeter, logging 1,278 tweets from Jan. 1 to July. 31.
Michigan has a 16-member congressional delegation, with two Democratic senators and 14 U.S. House members. The House delegation is split with seven Democrats, six Republicans and one independent.
