H. Res. 935 Establishing a Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis as a select investigative subcommittee of the Committee on Oversight and Reform NO Existing congressional committees and oversight established by the CARES Act – the special Congressional Oversight Commission, the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, and the Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery – provide ample oversight for the funds authorized in the CARES Act. A select committee would only be a theater for division and partisanship.

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.
