H.R. 1249: DHS Multiyear Acquisition Strategy Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1249 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.

H.R. 1249 requires the Department of Homeland Security to develop a Multiyear Acquisition Strategy as part of each Future Years Homeland Security Program to guide the overall direction of Department acquisitions, while also providing flexibility to deal with every-changing threats and risks.
