WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Heitkamp has been named one of the most effective senators by the Center for Effective Lawmaking.
It is a joint initiative between the University of Virginia and Vanderbilt University.
Heitkamp was ranked ninth among Democrats in the 114th Congress.
She sponsored 29 bills on a variety of issues and got three of those bills signed into law.
The Center said such success is rare for a member of the minority party and especially rare for a first time Senator.
