Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Conor Lamb sits on the following committees:
Lamb was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
- H.R. 2385: To permit the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to establish a grant program to conduct cemetery research and produce educational materials for the Veterans Legacy Program.
Does 1 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).
Lamb sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Lamb’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 8148: VA DATA Act
- H.R. 8147: TREAT Act
- H.R. 8149: VA Precision Medicine Act
- H.R. 8105: SERVE Act
- H.R. 7837: SAFE Kids and Jobs Act
- H.R. 7426: Ohio River Basin Preparedness Act
- H.R. 6981: PPP DEAL Act
From Apr 2018 to Sep 2020, Lamb missed 5 of 1,264 roll call votes, which is 0.4%. This is better than the median of 2.2% 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.
