The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
Expresses the sense of the Congress that the United States should: (1) place the highest priority on its successful participation in the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) (and that the President should make every effort to attend); (2) actively support the signing of international agreements that effectively reduce the threats of climate change and the loss of biological diversity and that establish a strong framework for cooperation between developing and developed countries on a wide range of environmental and developmental issues; (3) seek the development of a stronger legal framework to protect the global environment; (4) support the effort to address the legitimate needs of developing countries for increased financial resources, new and appropriate technologies, and reduced debt burden to facilitate sustainable growth; (5) support initiatives to help developing countries become more energy efficient, with increased priority on renewable energy resources and more efficient transportation systems; and (6) support global goals of slowing deforestation of primary native forests.
House Republican Conference Summary
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
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.
