Krebs is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 1978 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 Krebs sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 3, 1973 to Oct 15, 1978. See full analysis methodology.
Krebs was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
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).
Krebs sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Public Lands and Natural Resources (27%) Water Resources Development (17%) Labor and Employment (12%) Agriculture and Food (12%) Foreign Trade and International Finance (12%) Social Welfare (10%) Taxation (7%) Immigration (5%)

From Jan 1975 to Oct 1978, Krebs missed 25 of 2,813 roll call votes, which is 0.9%. This is better than the median of 8.8% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1978. 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.
