Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Randy Weber sits on the following committees:
House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology
- Ranking Member, Subcommittee on Energy
- House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure
Weber was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 431: Nuclear Energy Innovation Capabilities Act of 2017
- H.R. 5246 (114th): To remove the Federal claim to navigational servitude for a parcel of land in Texas City, Texas, and for other purposes.
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).
Weber sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Crime and Law Enforcement (16%) Energy (16%) Transportation and Public Works (16%) Civil Rights and Liberties, Minority Issues (12%) Science, Technology, Communications (12%) Taxation (12%) Armed Forces and National Security (8%) Public Lands and Natural Resources (8%)

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