The work of the 114th Congress (January 2015 – January 2017)

The work of members of Congress is structured around two types of day: work on Capitol Hill, when Congress is in session, and ‘district days’ in their constituencies. Each member of Congress may introduce bills and resolutions.
Between 1973 and 2016, each member introduced an average of 20 proposals per Congress. In total, 13 556 proposed measures (bills, various types of resolution) were introduced in the 115th Congress (2017-2019), but only 3 % of them were enacted.
