Grover was the representative for New York’s 2nd congressional district and was a Republican. He served from 1963 to 1974.
Grover is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 1974 positioned according to our liberal–conservative ideology score (left to right) and our leadership score (leaders are toward the top).
The chart is based on the bills Grover sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 3, 1973 to Dec 20, 1974. See full analysis methodology.
Grover was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
- H.J.Res. 483 (93rd): Joint resolution to authorize the President to issue annually a proclamation designating the month of May in each year as “National Arthritis Month”.
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).
Grover sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:

From Jan 1963 to Dec 1974, Grover missed 248 of 3,273 roll call votes, which is 7.6%. This is on par with the median of 9.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1974. 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.
