Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Dwight Evans sits on the following committees:
Evans was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 6347 (115th): 7(a) Real Estate Appraisal Harmonization Act
- H.R. 2655: Small Business Innovation Protection Act of 2017
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).
Evans sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Evans’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 6344: Expediting the EIDL Program Act of 2020
- H.R. 5937: To designate the headquarters building of the Department of Transportation located at 1200 ...

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