House grinding out suspension bills

The other bill debated but not voted on is H.R. 1775, the Stolen Valor Act. This bill would reinstate a law struck down by the Supreme Court that made it a crime to lie about military service. The new bill would more specifically make it a crime to benefit from lying about military service.
