Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Linda Sánchez sits on the following committees:
Sánchez was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 3144: To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 8520 Michigan Avenue in Whittier, California, as the “Jose Ramos Post Office Building”.
- H.R. 982: To avoid duplicative annual reporting under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, and for other purposes.
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).
Sánchez sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Education (22%) Health (20%) Taxation (18%) Armed Forces and National Security (12%) Social Welfare (10%) Government Operations and Politics (8%) Labor and Employment (5%) Finance and Financial Sector (5%)

From Jan 2003 to Mar 2020, Sánchez missed 602 of 12,114 roll call votes, which is 5.0%. This is much worse than the median of 2.2% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving. 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.
