H.Res. 311: Recognizing that for 50 years the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) has worked toward stability, prosperity, and peace in Southeast Asia.

This was a vote to agree to H.Res. 311 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.

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is a multilateral organization based in Southeast Asia consisting of: Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. The organization was established in 1967 and the United States established dialogue relations with the organization in 1977.

H.Res. 311 supports the elevation of the U.S.- ASEAN relationship to a strategic partnership; encourages the enhancement of U.S.- ASEAN economic engagement through the elimination of trade barriers; supports ASEAN cooperation to combat terrorism and violent extremism; supports efforts to constructively address regional maritime and territorial disputes; urges parties to exercise self-restraint and to refrain from militarizing uninhabited islands; and reaffirms the U.S. commitment to join with ASEAN to combat human smuggling and trafficking in persons.
