Does 1 not sound like a lot? Very few bills are ever enacted — most legislators sponsor only a handful that are signed into law.

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).
Moolenaar sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
