Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Andy Biggs sits on the following committees:
Biggs was the primary sponsor of 3 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 7104: JACK Act
- H.R. 2666: AMBER Alert in Indian Country Act of 2017
- H.R. 4383: To reform the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
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).
Biggs sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Biggs’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.Con.Res. 58: Commemorating the 35th anniversary of the Mexico City policy.
- H.R. 2971: Freedom for Small Businesses Act of 2019
- H.Res. 394: Recognizing the 36th anniversary of National Missing Children’s Day.
- H.R. 2742: Abortion Is Not Health Care Act of 2019
- H.Res. 373: Supporting the goals and ideals of a National Move Over Law Day.
- H.R. 2163: Freedom for Families Act
- H.R. 1720: Limiting Emergency Powers Act of 2019
From Jan 2017 to Sep 2019, Biggs missed 20 of 1,740 roll call votes, which is 1.1%. This is better than the median of 2.0% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
