H.R. 1563 Cosponsor timeline showing large bump in cosponsorships after the election recess.
Congress is back in session and cosponsors are being added to bills again for the first time since September. Through Friday, 14 November, there was no change in the membership of the top 25 most-cosponsored bills in the US House, but there was some minor reshuffling of the order within the top 25. H.R. 2366 jumped into a four-way tie for 13th place with 301 cosponsors by merely adding one cosponsor. H.R. 1563 jumped three spots from 25th to 22nd by adding 20 new cosponsors. This prompted H.Res. 434, H.R. 543, and H.R. 721 to all fall one spot.

Last week there were 166 new bills introduced in the House. There were 1,357 new non-original cosponsors added to 446 different bills in the House. H.Res. 620 and H.R. 5403 tied for the largest number of House cosponsors added last week with 43 each – eight cosponsors more than the next highest recipient, H.R. 5441 with 35.

The new top 25 bills list is produced here, along with links to detailed graphs and maps for each bill in the top 25.
