Strange 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).
Strange recently introduced the following legislation:
- S. 1550 (115th): Department of Veterans Affairs Quality Employment Act of 2017
- S. 1456 (115th): Sanctity of Human Life Act
- S. 1397 (115th): Protecting the Second Amendment Act
- S. 1126 (115th): Securing the Border and Protecting Our Communities Act

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
