Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Al Green sits on the following committees:
Green was the primary sponsor of 3 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 2689: Minority Business Resiliency Act of 2021
- H.R. 251 (114th): Homes for Heroes Act of 2015
- H.R. 1154 (110th): To award a Congressional Gold Medal to Michael Ellis DeBakey, M.D.
Does 3 not sound like a lot? Very few bills are ever enacted — most legislators sponsor only a handful that are signed into law. But there are other legislative activities that we don’t track that are also important, including offering amendments, committee work and oversight of the other branches, and constituent services.
We consider a bill enacted if one of the following is true: a) it is enacted itself, b) it has a companion bill in the other chamber (as identified by Congress) which was enacted, or c) if at least about half of its provisions were incorporated into bills that were enacted (as determined by an automated text analysis, applicable beginning with bills in the 110th Congress).
Green sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Housing and Community Development (20%) Civil Rights and Liberties, Minority Issues (20%) Finance and Financial Sector (16%) Crime and Law Enforcement (11%) Government Operations and Politics (11%) International Affairs (9%) Commerce (6%) Immigration (5%)

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
