PASSED

226-184

H.R. 3624 Outsourcing Accountability Act of 2019 NO This bill does not help the everyday investor or strengthen our public markets. At best, this legislation would tell an incomplete story and, at worst, would deeply mislead. 
10/17/2019

PASSED

229-186

H.R. 1815 SEC Disclosure Effectiveness Testing Act NO This bill does not help the everyday investor or strengthen our public markets. This legislation ties the SEC’s hands in an attempt to undo a rulemaking package from June of 2019. 

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.
