Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
12/7/2006--Passed Senate without amendment. (This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary of that version is repeated here.) Prescribes requirements for affixing permanent or semi-permanent artwork to, or removing it from, the public spaces and committee rooms of the Senate wing of the Capitol and the Senate office buildings. Requires the Senate Commission on Art to recommend the affixation, in an appropriate location, or removal. Requires that at least 25 years have passed since: (1) the death of any subject in a portrait included in the artwork; or (2) the commemorative event that is to be portrayed in it. Requires also that the Senate has passed a Senate resolution approving the Commission's recommendation. Declares that it is the sense of the Senate that the Commission consider specified factors before making an affixation recommendation. Requires the Commission, if a request meets the requirements of this Act, to select the artist and supervise the creation of the artwork and its application to the selected surface.

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.
