According to the Brookings Institution Alan Grayson (pictured), a Democrat Congressman from Florida, has sponsored 44 pieces of legislation during the 113th Congress, more than any other House member, yet not a single one of them has reached the House floor.
The data were released as part of a Brookings project called “Congressional Moneyball,” which analyzes “which legislators were more productive in 2013, and which let their team down” by assigning each member a “batting average.”
An “at-bat” represents sponsorship of a piece of legislation. A “hit” is awarded when the legislation is passed out of committee.
Grayson is batting .000 since being elected in 2012.
