Rep. Bob Inglis
Former Representative for South Carolina’s 4th District
Inglis is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 2010 positioned according to our ideology score (left to right) and our leadership score (leaders are toward the top).
The chart is based on the bills Inglis sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 4, 2005 to Dec 21, 2010. See full analysis methodology.
Inglis was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 5546 (109th): To designate the United States courthouse to be constructed in Greenville, South Carolina, as the “Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. United States Courthouse”.
- H.J.Res. 193 (104th): Granting the consent of Congress to the Emergency Management Assistance Compact.
Does 2 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).
Inglis sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:

From Jan 1993 to Dec 2010, Inglis missed 244 of 8,394 roll call votes, which is 2.9%. This is on par with the median of 3.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 2010. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
