A bill to improve women's access to health care services and provide improved medical care by reducing the excessive burden the liability system places on the delivery of obstetrical and gynecological services.
The bill’s title was written by its sponsor.
This is the first step in the legislative process.
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.
Failed Cloture in the Senate
The Senate must often vote to end debate before voting on a bill, called a cloture vote. The vote on cloture failed. This is often considered a filibuster. The Senate may try again.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 23”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
