H.R. 5140 (110th): Economic Stimulus Act of 2008

This was a vote to pass H.R. 5140 (110th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

It was not the final House vote on the bill. See the history of H.R. 5140 (110th) for further details.

We advise you to take any letters you receive regarding this bill and payment notifications skeptically. Keep in mind that frauds can look very official. Contact your own lender if you have questions. (Some individuals are receiving letters that include a link to this page. GovTrack has nothing to do with those letters.)
