    Burgess, R-Texas, motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill that would allow for paramedics and other emergency medical services professionals to continue to administer certain controlled substances pursuant to written protocols in which agency medical directors have determined in advance the medical criteria that need to be met, known as standing orders. It also would allow for EMS agencies, for purposes of administering these controlled substances, to register with the Justice Department through a single registration per state instead of requiring separate registrations for each location. Motion agreed to 404-0. Note: A two-thirds majority of those present and voting (270 in this case) is required for passage under suspension of the rules. Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., had not yet been sworn in and thus was ineligible to vote. Congressional Record p. H206-H208, H218
