Meng is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot is a member of the House of Representatives 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 Meng has sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 3, 2017 to Dec 2, 2022. See full analysis methodology.
Grace Meng sits on the following committees:
Meng was the primary sponsor of 4 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 3525: Commission To Study the Potential Creation of a National Museum of Asian Pacific American History and Culture Act
- H.R. 423 (115th): Anti-Spoofing Act of 2017
- H.R. 4238 (114th): To amend the Department of Energy Organization Act and the Local Public Works Capital Development and Investment Act of 1976 to modernize terms relating to minorities.
- H.R. 4028 (113th): To amend the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 to include the desecration of cemeteries among the many forms of violations of the right to religious freedom.
Does 4 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).
Meng sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
International Affairs (22%) Health (16%) Government Operations and Politics (12%) Arts, Culture, Religion (11%) Immigration (11%) Transportation and Public Works (11%) Environmental Protection (9%) Commerce (9%)

From Jan 2013 to Dec 2022, Meng missed 201 of 5,620 roll call votes, which is 3.6%. This is worse than the median of 2.0% 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.
