H.R. 3317: SAFE Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 3317 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. 3317 would increase the federal penalty for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) from up to 5 years of imprisonment to up to 15 years of imprisonment. The bill also calls on states to ensure that they have proper laws in place for healthcare providers, school officials, and adults to report suspected FGM to local law enforcement.
