       Mr. Smith of Texas, from the Committee on the Judiciary, 
                        submitted the following

                          SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT

                         [To accompany H.R. 5]

    On March 17, 2011, the Committee on the Judiciary filed 
House Report 112-39, Part 1, relating to H.R. 5, to improve 
patient access to health care services and provide improved 
medical care by reducing the excessive burden the liability 
system places on the health care delivery system (commonly 
known as the HEALTH Act of 2011).
    In the original report, a printing error appears in 
rollcall vote #1. The report incorrectly listed Mr. Johnson as 
not voting. Mr. Johnson voted for the amendment.
    In rollcall vote #4, the original report also incorrectly 
listed Ms. Jackson Lee, Ms. Waters, Mr. Cohen, Mr. Quigley, Ms. 
Chu, Mr. Deutch, and Ms. Sanchez as having voted against the 
amendment. The correct result shows that those Members voted 
for the amendment.
    The corrected rollcall votes are being printed in this 
supplemental report.

                            Committee Votes

    1. An amendment by Mr. Conyers to exempt claims based on 
intentional tort liability from the bill's coverage. Defeated
