Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Luis Correa sits on the following committees:
Correa was the primary sponsor of 3 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 1641: Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act
- H.R. 4946 (115th): To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 1075 North Tustin Street in Orange, California, as the “Specialist Trevor A. Win’E Post Office”.
- H.R. 4335 (115th): Servicemember Family Burial Act
Does 3 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).
Correa sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Armed Forces and National Security (26%) Government Operations and Politics (19%) Health (12%) Immigration (12%) Education (10%) Crime and Law Enforcement (10%) Private Legislation (7%) Emergency Management (5%)
