Horn was the representative for Missouri’s 2nd congressional district and was a Democrat. She served from 1991 to 1992.
Horn is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 1992 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 Horn sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 6, 1987 to Oct 9, 1992. See full analysis methodology.
Horn was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.J.Res. 467 (102nd): Designating October 24, 1992, through November 1, 1992, as “National Red Ribbon Week for a Drug-Free America”.
- H.J.Res. 340 (102nd): To designate October 19 through 27, 1991 as “National Red Ribbon Week for a Drug-Free America”.
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).
Horn sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Horn’s most recently sponsored bills include...

From Jan 1991 to Oct 1992, Horn missed 2 of 932 roll call votes, which is 0.2%. This is better than the median of 4.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1992. 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.
