Krueger was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
- S. 1050 (103rd): A bill to designate the Federal building located at 525 Griffin Street in Dallas, Texas, as the “A. Maceo Smith Federal Building”.
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).
Krueger sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:

From Feb 1993 to Jun 1993, Krueger missed 39 of 146 roll call votes, which is 26.7%. This is much worse than the median of 3.4% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Jun 1993. 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.
