Rogan was the representative for California’s 27th congressional district and was a Republican. He served from 1997 to 2000.
Rogan is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 2000 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 Rogan sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 4, 1995 to Dec 15, 2000. See full analysis methodology.
Rogan was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 4157 (106th): To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 600 Lincoln Avenue in Pasadena, California, as the “Matthew ‘Mack’ Robinson Post Office Building”.
- H.R. 322 (106th): For the relief of Suchada Kwong.
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).
Rogan sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Government Operations and Politics (25%) Crime and Law Enforcement (15%) Law (15%) Commerce (14%) Economics and Public Finance (10%) Families (8%) Education (6%) Science, Technology, Communications (6%)

From Jan 1997 to Dec 2000, Rogan missed 108 of 2,401 roll call votes, which is 4.5%. This is worse than the median of 3.0% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 2000. 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.
