Lloyd is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 1980 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 Lloyd sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 14, 1975 to Dec 13, 1980. See full analysis methodology.
Lloyd was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.J.Res. 477 (96th): A joint resolution to authorize and request the President to issue a proclamation honoring the memory of Walt Disney on the 25th Anniversary of his contribution to ...
- H.R. 8863 (94th): A bill for the relief of Randy E. Crismundo.
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).
Lloyd sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Government Operations and Politics (27%) Taxation (19%) Social Welfare (17%) Housing and Community Development (12%) Private Legislation (8%) Economics and Public Finance (6%) Crime and Law Enforcement (6%) International Affairs (4%)

From Jan 1975 to Dec 1980, Lloyd missed 154 of 4,089 roll call votes, which is 3.8%. This is better than the median of 8.6% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1980. 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.
