Library of Congress Summary
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: (1) the Government of Iraq is committing massive human rights violations against its civilian population and obstructing international humanitarian relief efforts in its country, and these actions constitute flagrant violations of Security Council Resolution 688; (2) the President should seek the adoption of a Security Council resolution under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations authorizing appropriate actions to compel the Government of Iraq to comply with such resolution; (3) at the 47th session of the United Nations General Assembly, the President should support the recommendation of the Special Rapporteur of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights that a team of human rights monitors be sent to Iraq to investigate alleged violations of human rights and to remain in Iraq until the human rights situation improves drastically; and (4) the President should seek the adoption of a United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing the placement of human rights monitors in Iraq consistent with the recommendation of the Special Rapporteur.
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.
