On the Motion (Murray Motion to Commit H.R. 1628 to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, with Instructions)

This motion, from Senator Murray, D-WA, would send H.R. 1628 to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee for review for at least three days. This was the Democrats’ last delaying tactic before the vote on the “skinny repeal”. It could also be reasonably described as an attempt to return to the "regular order" recently invoked several times by GOP Senator McCain in which bills in the Senate aren't brought to the floor until they have first been reviewed by committees, with hearings, reports and other elements of Senate procedure.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. Diane Black [R-TN6] on March 20, 2017, H.R. 1628: American Health Care Act of 2017.
