There were no roll call votes in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local senators’ roll call attendance records for the entire 2020 session. The Senate held 330 roll calls in 2020. Beacon Hill Roll Call tabulates the number of roll calls on which each senator was present and voting and then calculates that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. In the Senate, 84.6 percent (33 senators) have 100 percent roll call attendance records. Only six senators have missed any roll calls. Beacon Hill Roll Call contacted these senators who missed roll calls and asked them for a statement. More senators have 100 percent roll call attendance records than in recent memory. This can be attributed to the fact that most senators were not at the Statehouse and participated in these Senate sessions remotely from their homes because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of senators who had 100 percent roll call attendance records in the prior four years was 28 in 2019; 20 in 2018; 24 in 2017; and 17 in 2016. The senator who missed the most roll calls is Sen. Nick Collins (D-Boston) who missed 12 roll calls (96.3 percent attendance record). “My wife and I were overjoyed to welcome our second daughter into the world last June,” said Collins. “As a result, I was unable to cast votes in person for several days. Eleven of the 12 votes I missed were while I was on paternity leave. It was incredibly important to be with my wife and daughters in those precious moments. The final missed roll call was for a land conveyance in the town of Dunstable, taken at 4 a.m. at the very end of the session as I was caring for my newborn.” Sens. Pat Jehlen (D-Somerville) and Mike Rush (D-West Roxbury) each missed five roll calls (98.4 percent attendance record). “On January 16, [2020] I was home with the flu,” responded Jehlen. “There were five roll calls that I missed [that day]. It’s the only session I missed.” “I was out of state on official orders, training with the U.S. Navy from January 10, 2020 to January 19, 2020,” wrote Rush. Former Sen. James Welch missed two roll calls. He could not be reached for comment. Sens. Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport) and Barry Finegold (D-Andover) each missed one roll call. “I was in session participating in the debate on the climate change bill and I don’t remember missing a roll call,” responded Rodrigues. Finegold did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. 2020 FINAL SENATE ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORD The percentage listed next to the senator’s name is the percentage of roll call votes for which the senator was present and voting. The number in parentheses represents the number of roll calls that he or she missed. Sen. Jason Lewis 100 percent (0) HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of February 1-5, the House met for a total of six minutes while the Senate met for a total of eleven minutes. Mon.
