Golden was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 4833: Multigenerational Engagement Act of 2019
- H.R. 459: Acadia National Park Boundary Clarification Act
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).
Golden sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Golden’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 8076: State Veterans Homes Domiciliary Care Flexibility Act
- H.R. 8040: Small Business Last Mile Act of 2020
- H.R. 8005: Veterans Access to Online Treatment Act
- H.R. 7684: Pandemic Care for Burn Pits Exposure Act of 2020
- H.R. 7526: Stop Foreign Payoffs Act
- H.R. 7525: Crack Down on Dark Money Act
- H.R. 7481: RESTART Act

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
