Out of all roll call votes, 90 individual legislators did not miss any votes. 3 individual legislators missed more than 50 votes.[5] Habib missed 34 votes in a total of 1211 roll calls. Habib responded to the number of votes he missed. “My father had a very serious liver surgery on February 14, which required me to be with him at the UW Medical Center. February 14 happened to be a heavy voting day, and all the votes I missed this session were missed on that day,” he said.[6]
