The House of Representatives failed to approve a bill that would establish an Active Shooter Alert Communications Network, whereby the federal government would work with states and tribal authorities to set up systems to notify people in the event of an active shooter in their area.
The vote was done on a motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, which required two thirds for approval. While a majority of members voted in favor of the bill by a count of 259-162, this fell short of the votes needed to advance the bill. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said afterwards that Democrats will continue to push for the bill.
"Our House Democratic Majority will take up this legislation again and pass it — making clear that Democrats are on the side of protecting our families and supporting our courageous first responders," Pelosi said in a statement.
