The bill would extend the authority of the commission for another three years.
The second bill is H.R. 2189, the Death in Custody Reporting Act. That bill would reauthorize a 2000 law that required reports on deaths that occur during arrest, and while people are in prison.
Both bills were brought up under a suspension of House rules, usually reserved for non-controversial legislation. Votes are expected by 6:30 p.m.
The House adjourned before 2:30 p.m., but is expected back at about 3:30 p.m. to debate three other non-controversial bills. These are H.R. 2646, which authorizes hospital construction under the Department of Veterans Affairs; H.R. 2005, to reauthorize a federal autism detection and intervention program; and H.R. 1852, to reauthorize spending on graduate medical residency training programs.
