Does 9 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).
Stallings sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Private Legislation (18%) Agriculture and Food (14%) Taxation (14%) Public Lands and Natural Resources (14%) Energy (11%) Foreign Trade and International Finance (11%) Environmental Protection (11%) Water Resources Development (7%)

From Jan 1985 to Oct 1992, Stallings missed 196 of 3,664 roll call votes, which is 5.3%. This is on par with the median of 4.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1992. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
