Reported by Committee
A committee has issued a report to the full chamber recommending that the bill be considered further. Only about 1 in 4 bills are reported out of committee.
The bill was passed in a vote in the House. It goes to the Senate next. The vote was by Voice Vote so no record of individual votes was made.
This is a House of Representatives bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “H.R.” in “H.R. 5200”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
The committee chair determines whether a bill will move past the committee stage.
There have been no roll call votes related to this bill.
