Floor Schedule and Procedure:

Suspensions (5 bills)

  1. H.R. 21 – FedRAMP Authorization Act (Rep. Connolly – Oversight and Reform)

This bill would codify the FedRAMP Program at the General Services Administration. It would authorize GSA to establish a governmentwide program to provide a standardized approach to security assessment and authorization for cloud computing products and services. This bill is nearly identical to one passed by the House under suspension in the last Congress.

  1. H.R. 22 – Congressional Budget Justification Transparency Act of 2021 (Rep. Quigley – Oversight and Reform)

This bill would require congressional budget justifications to be posted online in a centralized, searchable database, as well as on the agency’s website. The bill also would require the Office of Management and Budget to maintain and regularly update a public list of agencies expected to submit congressional budget justifications, the date they are submitted to Congress, and when they are posted online. This bill is identical to one that passed the House under suspension in the last Congress

  1.  H.R. 23 – Inspector General Protection Act (Rep. Lieu – Oversight and Reform)

This bill would require notification of Congress in advance of an Inspector General (IG) being placed in a paid or unpaid non-duty status (administrative leave).  The bill would also require the President to report to Congress if an IG has not been nominated within 210 days after a vacancy occurs for the position, including the reasons the nomination has not been made and a target date for doing so. This bill is identical to one the passed the House under suspension in the last Congress.

  1.  H.R. 26 – Construction Consensus Procurement Improvement Act of 2021 (Rep. Comer – Oversight and Reform)

    This bill would prohibit the use of reverse auctions in awarding federal contracts for complex design and construction services. This bill corrects provisions in the Consolidated Appropriation Act, 2021, that were erroneously incorporated into that measure.

  2.  H.R. 27Settlement Agreement Information Database Act of 2021 (Rep. Palmer – Oversight and Reform)

    This bill amends title 5, U.S.C. to require the publication of settlement agreements in an on-line database. This bill is identical to one that passed the House under suspension in the last Congress.
