Does 4 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).
Marino sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Crime and Law Enforcement (30%) Government Operations and Politics (21%) Health (18%) Environmental Protection (6%) Public Lands and Natural Resources (6%) Commerce (6%) International Affairs (6%) Finance and Financial Sector (6%)

From Jan 2011 to Jan 2019, Marino missed 334 of 5,390 roll call votes, which is 6.2%. This is much worse than the median of 2.3% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jan 2019. 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.
