Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
7/2/1992--Reported to Senate amended. Expresses the sense of the Congress that U.S. policy should promote the conservation and protection of whale, dolphin, and porpoise populations, and that the United States should: (1) work to strengthen and maintain the International Whaling Commission (IWC) moratorium on the commercial killing of whales, and work toward a similar moratorium on the direct commercial harvest of dolphins and porpoises; (2) work to strengthen the IWC by reaffirming its competence to regulate direct commercial whaling on all species of cetaceans and encourage the IWC to utilize the expertise of its scientific committee by seriously considering the committee's recommendations; (3) give serious consideration to the proposal of France to create a sanctuary in the oceans of the southern hemisphere in which commercial whaling shall be expressly prohibited; and (4) make the fullest use of diplomatic channels, appropriate domestic and international law, and all other available means in promoting the conservation and protection of the world's whale populations.
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.
