Press Release

Washington, D.C. – The Center for Effective Lawmaking, a non-partisan collaboration between Vanderbilt University and University of Virginia, has named Congressman Tim Walberg as the most effective Republican lawmaker on technology-related issues. As a member of the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, Walberg has successfully championed bipartisan policies to encourage technological innovation and close the digital divide.
“I am committed to promoting good policy and getting results for my constituents on the issues that matter,” said Walberg. “Through a solutions-oriented approach, I am working to expand access to rural broadband, strengthen children’s digital safety, build a skilled telecommunications workforce, and more. In today’s connected world, technology impacts so much of our daily lives, and I am honored to receive this recognition for my leadership on such an important issue to the communities I represent in Michigan.”
“Despite not holding a committee or subcommittee Chair, Representative Tim Walberg was among the most active members of the Republican Party on issues that engaged with science and technology in the 116th Congress. He introduced five bills in this issue area, and guided one of them through the legislative process in the House until it passed the chamber; making him one of the very few Republican Representatives who succeeded in having a Science & Technology bill pass the House,” said Alan Wiseman, Co-Director, Center for Effective Lawmaking.
The Center’s rankings are calculated by the advancement of legislation from the 116th Session of Congress (2019-2020). Click here to find a full breakdown of most effective lawmakers.
