McHenry is shown as a purple triangle ▲ in our ideology-leadership chart below. Each dot is a member of the House of Representatives positioned according to our ideology score (left to right) and our leadership score (leaders are toward the top).
The chart is based on the bills McHenry has sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 3, 2019 to Jan 24, 2023. See full analysis methodology.
McHenry was the primary sponsor of 4 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 4458 (116th): Cybersecurity and Financial System Resilience Act of 2019
- H.R. 1839 (114th): Reforming Access for Investments in Startup Enterprises Act of 2015 or the RAISE Act of 2015
- H.R. 2949 (114th): Treatment of Certain Payments in Eugenics Compensation Act
- H.R. 5585 (109th): Financial Netting Improvements Act of 2006
Does 4 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).
McHenry sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:

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