The House has just approved H.Con.Res. 67, which authorizes the use of the Capitol Grounds for the DC Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run. The resolution was approved in a 379-0 vote.

The bill was considered under a suspension of House rules, a process usually reserved for noncontroversial items that requires a two-thirds majority for passage.

Members also abandoned plans to take up H.R. 2061, the Civilian Service Recognition Act, which authorizes the presentation of a U.S. flag at the funeral of federal civilian employees. The House could take up that bill later in the week.
