H.R. 1238: Securing our Agriculture and Food Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1238 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. 1238 amends the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to authorize a program to coordinate the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts related to food, agriculture, and veterinary defense from acts of terrorism and other high-consequence events that pose a risk to homeland security.
