H.R. 2345: National Suicide Hotline Improvement Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2345 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. 2345 would direct the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), in consultation with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), to study and report on the feasibility of designating a three-digit dialing code to be used for a national suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline system. In conducting this study, the FCC would be directed to consider each of the current N11 designations, to consult with the North American Numbering Council (NANC), and consult with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs with respect to how well the current National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is working to address the needs of veterans.
