We generate for the first time a time series that allows us to identify the number of duplicate bills in Congresses operating under different rules about the cosponsorship of bills. We show that changes in the congressional rules about bill cosponsorship affected the number of duplicate bills in a way fully consistent with a public choice perspective on legislative "credit claiming."
