H.R. 1309 Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act YES This legislation would help reduce workplace violence in the health care and social service sectors. Workers in these industries are five times likelier to be injured by an act of violence in the workplace, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

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.
