H.R. 3055 Commerce, Justice, Science, Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, 2020 NO In the context of the larger picture, H.R. 3055 was written to meet an unrealistic topline number that is $175 billion over the budget caps.

SUSPENSION BILLS

**A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House through suspending the rules to move quickly, circumventing the House Rules Committee.

Additionally, these bills are often passed by a voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.
