H.R. 33: Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 33 (114th) 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.

This bill was the vehicle for the passage of continuing appropriations.

This bill started out as the Protecting Volunteer Firefighters and Emergency Responders Act. It was passed by the House in this form. But on Feb 27, 2015 the Senate struck its text in whole and replaced it with a provision to fund the federal government through March 6, 2015. It was passed by the Senate and House and signed by the President in this form.
