Does 8 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).
Moore sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Moore’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 8638: To direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services to conduct a study ...
- H.R. 8387: Family Crisis Cash Assistance Act
- H.R. 7976: Suspend the Timeline not Parental Rights in a Public Health Crisis Act
- H.R. 7916: Removing Barriers to Basic Needs Act of 2020

- H.R. 7648: Taxpayer Fairness Fund Act of 2020
- H.R. 7551: Earned Income and Child Tax Credits Outreach Act of 2020
From Jan 2005 to Oct 2020, Moore missed 559 of 11,009 roll call votes, which is 5.1%. This is much worse than the median of 2.3% 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.
