Minute Man National Historical Park Amendments of 1991 - Revises the boundaries of the Minute Man National Historical Park in Massachusetts.

(1) owned by the State or a political subdivision may be acquired only by donation; and
(2) used for noncommercial residential purposes as of July 1, 1991, may be acquired only with the owner's consent unless the property is being developed in a manner detrimental to the Park. Authorizes an owner of property acquired by the Secretary to retain a right of use and occupancy for up to 25 years from the date of acquisition or the death of the owner or the owner's spouse, whichever is later.
Requires the Secretary, in the case of individuals who sold residential property between 1966 and 1968 to the United States for the Park and continue to occupy such property pursuant to special use permits, to offer to extend such permits for a term ending on the death of the individual or the individual's spouse, whichever is later.
Conditions such extensions on the payment of an annual fee.

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.
