H.R. 1319 American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 NO While billed as a COVID relief package, this $1.9T bill is filled with provisions that would do little to address the immediate needs of our communities as they recover and rebuild from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Included in the bill is a provision to create a $15 federal minimum wage.

SUSPENSION BILLS

**A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House through suspending the rules to move quickly, circumventing the House Rules Committee. Suspension bills are typically less controversial pieces of legislation, and as the rules are being suspended, they require a higher threshold, two-thirds of those voting in the House, to pass. Additionally, these bills are often passed by a voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.
