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).
Green sponsored bills primarily in these issue areas:
Foreign Trade and International Finance (26%) Government Operations and Politics (22%) International Affairs (14%) Crime and Law Enforcement (10%) Taxation (8%) Labor and Employment (8%) Public Lands and Natural Resources (7%) Social Welfare (6%)

From May 1964 to Oct 1976, Green missed 603 of 4,389 roll call votes, which is 13.7%. This is worse than the median of 8.7% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1976. 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.
