H.Res. 124 Expressing opposition to banning service in the Armed Forces by openly transgender individuals NO The resolution is a sense of Congress and has no actual effect on U.S. policy and is purely political messaging. It contains several factual errors, including referring to the Mattis Policy as a “ban” among other things. Transgender individuals are still able to serve openly under certain conditions

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.
