H.R. 4335: Servicemember Family Burial Act

May 7, 2018 at 7:09 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 4335 (115th) 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.

Under current law, spouses and eligible dependents of active-duty military are not allowed to be buried in a national cemetery if the spouse or dependent dies before the active-duty service-member. H.R. 4335 , the Service-member Family Burial Act would allow the spouses and eligible dependents of active-duty service-members who predecease the service-member to be interred in a national cemetery, if such death occurs before October 1, 2024.
