Does 15 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).
Maloney sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Crime and Law Enforcement (18%) Finance and Financial Sector (16%) Health (15%) International Affairs (13%) Education (11%) Labor and Employment (11%) Government Operations and Politics (9%) Civil Rights and Liberties, Minority Issues (8%)
Some of Maloney’s most recently sponsored bills include...

From Jan 1993 to Jan 2020, Maloney missed 784 of 17,888 roll call votes, which is 4.4%. This is worse than the median of 2.1% 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.
