Engavetamento - Legislative vocabulary

Hello!
How could I translate "engavetamento" to English? Meaning a deliberated action of legislators not voting a bill in the parliament, i.e., it remains in a "drawer" waiting for a positive or negative decision.
I found three possible translations: deadlock, gridlock and stalemate
Thank you in advance!
