Ratings from Advocacy Organizations
Ted Budd sits on the following committees:
Budd was the primary sponsor of 1 bill that was enacted:
- H.R. 8202 (116th): To designate the airport traffic control tower located at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina, as the “Senator Kay Hagan Airport Traffic Control Tower”.
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).
Budd sponsors bills primarily in these issue areas:
Finance and Financial Sector (30%) Government Operations and Politics (19%) Taxation (14%) Health (14%) International Affairs (7%) Civil Rights and Liberties, Minority Issues (6%) Labor and Employment (6%) Education (4%)
