Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Carol Miller sits on the following committees:
Miller was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 3362 (116th): Small Airport Mothers’ Rooms Act of 2019
- H.R. 4610 (116th): New River Gorge National Park and Preserve Designation Act
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).
Miller sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Miller’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 3667: To amend title IV of the Social Security Act to target additional child ...

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