Pompeo was the representative for Kansas’s 4th congressional district and was a Republican. He served from 2011 to 2017.
Pompeo is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 2016 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 Pompeo sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 5, 2011 to Dec 30, 2016. See full analysis methodology.
Pompeo was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 1848 (113th): Small Airplane Revitalization Act of 2013
- H.R. 3363 (113th): Small Airplane Revitalization Act of 2013
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).
Pompeo sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Pompeo’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 6375 (114th): Power And Security Systems (PASS) Act
- H.R. 6214 (114th): Power And Security Systems (PASS) Act
- H.R. 5940 (114th): No Ransom Payments Act of 2016
- H.Res. 830 (114th): Calling for all parties to respect the arbitral tribunal ruling with regard ...
- H.R. 5333 (114th): No Impunity for Iranian Aggression at Sea Act of 2016
- H.R. 5318 (114th): SHIELD Act of 2016
- H.R. 5200 (114th): Iran-Russia Cooperation Reporting Act
From Jan 2011 to Jan 2017, Pompeo missed 191 of 4,196 roll call votes, which is 4.6%. This is worse than the median of 2.5% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 2017. 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.
