Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Brindisi was the primary sponsor of 3 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 2333: Support for Suicide Prevention Coordinators Act
- H.R. 4285: Department of Veterans Affairs Expiring Authorities Act of 2019
- H.R. 2972: To direct the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to improve the communications of the Department of Veterans Affairs relating to services available for women veterans, and for other purposes.
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).
Brindisi sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Brindisi’s most recently sponsored bills include...

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