MM reports Residence leadership confirmed on Friday that a bipartisan marijuana banking bill will obtain a floor vote subsequent week regardless of objections from various major advocacy groups who want broader justice-oriented cannabis reforms to advance prior to what they see as an business-focused proposal.
The Safe and Fair Enforcement (Secure) Banking Act, which cleared the Monetary Solutions Committee in March, will be voted on via a approach identified as suspension of the guidelines, requiring two-thirds of the chamber (290 members) to help it for passage.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) announced the scheduling of the vote in remarks on the Residence floor on Friday morning.
“We will take into account various bills below suspension of the guidelines, which includes H.R. 1595, the Secure Banking Act of 2019, as amended.”
