Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Lee was the primary sponsor of 3 bills that were enacted:
- H.R. 6589 (116th): Department of Veterans Affairs Chief Financial Officer Authority and Collaboration Act of 2020
- H.R. 1198: To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 404 South Boulder Highway in Henderson, Nevada, as the “Henderson Veterans Memorial Post Office Building”.
- H.R. 4154: Leave no Veteran Behind Act
Does 3 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).
Lee sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:

From Jan 2019 to Jan 2021, Lee missed 4 of 972 roll call votes, which is 0.4%. This is better than 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.
