boxercosponsorWith the retirement of longtime California Senator Barbara Boxer, it’s natural to ask what laws has she sponsored that later became law during her long tenure. It’s worth noting that the number of bills passed does not describe the entire record of service by Senator Boxer. Boxer has cosponsored, amended, voted for, or chaired hearings over a huge number of bills that later became law. According to GovTrack.us, Senator Boxer has cosponsored of 511 bills that later became law of the land. The hundreds of bills cosponsored are too numerous to list in one post so we’ve included a screen shot of the query to confirm our findings.

It’s also worth noting that my previous statement is not an excuse for what seems like a small amount of sponsored bills passed. Her colleague Feinstein has passed 25 sponsored bills with ten less years of service.

The bills below are a snapshot of her overall legislative record as a sponsor of legislation and an examination of what battles she led in service of the Golden State. Thanks to GovtTrack.us for designing a great database that made this search easy! Leave us a comment to let us know which bill caught your eye.
