Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Weber was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 431 (115th): 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:
Transportation and Public Works (16%) Energy (16%) Science, Technology, Communications (16%) Crime and Law Enforcement (16%) Immigration (12%) Public Lands and Natural Resources (8%) Civil Rights and Liberties, Minority Issues (8%) Taxation (8%)
Some of Weber’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.Res. 1243: Recognizing the 20th anniversary of the International Space Station.
- H.R. 8768: Keeping America’s Energy Resources Moving Act of 2020
- H.R. 6796: Nuclear Energy for the Future Act

From Jan 2013 to Jan 2021, Weber missed 84 of 4,711 roll call votes, which is 1.8%. This is on par with the median of 2.0% among the lifetime records of representatives currently serving. 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.
