Kreidler is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot was a member of the House of Representatives in 1994 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 Kreidler sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 3, 1989 to Nov 29, 1994. See full analysis methodology.
Kreidler was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
- H.J.Res. 199 (103rd): To recognize the achievements of radio amateurs, and to establish support for such amateurs as national policy.
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).
Kreidler sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Government Operations and Politics (26%) Health (26%) Labor and Employment (14%) Science, Technology, Communications (8%) Armed Forces and National Security (8%) Families (8%) Energy (6%) Transportation and Public Works (4%)

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