THEY HAD MUCH TO SAY

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

Some law­mak­ers are more chatty than oth­ers. C-SPAN is of­fer­ing “end-of-year stats on the 114th Congress” gaug­ing which House mem­bers made the most floor ap­pear­ances dur­ing the year. The public af­fairs chan­nel, which faith­fully cov­ers leg­is­la­tion and pol­icy on Capi­tol Hill and else­where from dawn to dusk, has named the top-10 rep­re­sen­ta­tives with the most ap­pear­ances be­fore their peers — and the cam­eras of C-SPAN.

Seven Repub­li­cans and three Democrats were named.

In first place is Rep. Glenn Thomp­son, Penn­syl­va­nia Repub­li­can, who stepped out to speak 208 days this year. In sec­ond place is Rep. Sheila Jack­son Lee, Texas Demo­crat, with 163 days; fol­lowed by Rep. Doug LaMalfa, Cal­i­for­nia Repub­li­can (140 days); Rep. Lleana Ros-Le­hti­nen, Florida Repub­li­can (137 days); Rep. Joe Wil­son, South Carolina Repub­li­can (127 days); Rep. Ted Poe, Texas Repub­li­can (124 days); Rep. Earl Blu­me­nauer, Ore­gon Demo­crat) (118 days); Rep. Dan Kildee, Michi­gan Demo­crat (108 days); Robert Dold, Illi­nois Repub­li­can (106 days) and Rep. Vir­ginia Foxx, North Carolina Repub­li­can with 105 days.
