H.R. 2422: Action for Dental Health Act of 2017

Feb 26, 2018 at 7:13 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2422 (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.

H.R. 2422 authorizes $18 million in each of the fiscal years 2018 through 2022 the oral health promotion and disease prevention programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and expands initiatives to enhance oral health education and community-wide dental disease prevention. The bill also authorizes $13.9 million in each of the fiscal years 2018 through 2022 for the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Grants to States to Support Oral Health Workforce Activities, which aim to increase access to dental care in underserved communities.
