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.

H.R. 5110

My Vote  |  YES

Passage of this bill averted a government shutdown, temporarily funding our government until November 17, 2023 while the House continues working to pass fiscally responsible appropriations bills that make sense for the American people.
