Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Roger Marshall sits on the following committees:
Marshall was the primary sponsor of 2 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 859: To authorize the honorary appointment of Robert J. Dole to the grade of colonel in the regular Army.
- H.R. 2711 (115th): National Memorial to Fallen Educators Act
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).
Marshall sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Some of Marshall’s most recently sponsored bills include...
- H.R. 8677: To provide payments for home health services furnished via visual or audio telecommunication ...

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