H.R. 1 For the People Act of 2019 NO I support efforts to reduce fraud and increase transparency in our elections, but H.R. 1 doesn’t even come close to accomplishing that. H.R. 1 gives taxpayer funds to politicians to use in their political campaigns. Your hard earned dollars should be put toward keeping our country safe and providing for important programs like Medicare and Social Security, not into political re-election campaigns.

 

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.
