H.R. 1660: Global Health Innovation Act of 2017
On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass in the House

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1660 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. 1660 directs the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to submit to Congress a report—with four annual updates—on the development and use of global health innovations in USAID programs. The report must include information on how USAID is working independently and with partners, donors, and the private sector to develop and bring to scale health products, and how this work is advancing commitments to counter HIV/AIDS, preventable child and maternal deaths, and the spread of infectious diseases.
