TX – Burgess, Michael

 

Cook PVI 2017 Average Legislative Score Madison Performance Index (MPI) Take Action
R+18 85 -5 Click for contact information

Burgess is in his 8th term, representing the 26th district north of the the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. He sits on the Energy and Rules Committees and is a member of the Tea Party Caucus. His 85% legislative rating reflects a Congressman in conflict: generally committed to defending the taxpayer, but on crucial votes, too often addicted to compromise and the pork that compromise invariably brings. Ironically, his -5 Performance Index number is one of the best in the Texas GOP delegation. Burgess often does the right thing, but needs pressure to keep doing it.
