Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
Disapproves of the growing intolerance, discrimination, and violence directed against individuals and groups because of their religion or belief in violation of international agreements.
Expresses concern about the adoption of laws and regulations by Participating States of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) that discriminate against minority or so-called "non-traditional" religions or beliefs and that limit the freedom of individuals to profess and practice religion or belief.
Calls upon the President and the Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom to: (1) raise violations of the freedom of thought, conscience, religion, or belief, at every appropriate level with representatives of countries that have failed to implement their international commitments and obligations in this regard; (2) ensure that the United States makes full use of existing meetings and structures of international organizations to raise violations of Participating States' freely undertaken international commitments in this regard; and (3) support the inclusion of experts on religious liberty on U.S. delegations to appropriate meetings of international organizations, including the OSCE.

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.
