Read our 2016 Report Card for Nugent.
Nugent 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 Nugent sponsored and cosponsored from Jan 5, 2011 to Dec 30, 2016. See full analysis methodology.
Nugent was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
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).
Nugent sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Nugent’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 3388 (114th): SOLDIER Act
- H.R. 3170 (114th): Student Debt Repayment Fairness Act

From Jan 2011 to Dec 2016, Nugent missed 225 of 4,135 roll call votes, which is 5.4%. This is much worse than the median of 2.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 2016. 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.
