However, according to his 2015, congressional report card, Collins received some of the worst ratings compared with his peers. Among New York's congressional delegation, he was rated lowest in regard to joining bipartisan bills and second lowest when it came to writing them. He is also the most Conservative member of Congress in New York State.
Collins has also recieved intense scrutiny over exporting jobs from Western New York while claiming that he wants to create them.
