Amends the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 to include within the definition of "response action contractor" any surety who provides a bid, performance, or payment bond to a response action contractor and begins activities to meet obligations under such bond. Provides that surety bonds required for direct Federal procurement of response action contracts under the Miller Act shall be issued in accordance with such Act. Provides that, if under any Federal law surety bonds are required for direct Federal procurement of response action contracts: (1) no right of action shall accrue on the performance bond issued on such contract to or for the use of any person other than the obligee named in the bond; and (2) in the event of a default, the surety's liability on a bond shall be only for the cost of completion of the contract work in accordance with the plans less the balance of funds remaining to be paid under the contract, up to the penal sum of the bond.

No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
