PASSED

226-203

H.R. 2740 Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act NO This package misses the mark, especially by underfunding the Defense budget by $17 billion and running the risk of sequestration. Instead of carefully considering each bill in turn this package was forced through in an irresponsible way and fails to make the spending restraint needing to reduce the deficit, address our growing debt, and get our country back on a better fiscal path.

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.
