Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
Congressional Record Printing Savings Act of 2011 - Revises requirements for printing the Congressional Record, specifying that it be made electronically available promptly as it is issued in daily form.
Prohibits the Government Printing Office (GPO) from printing more than the minimum number of copies of the Record necessary for archival purposes.
Requires the Public Printer to:
(1) determine that minimum number of copies, and
(2) ensure the most cost-effective printing of it.
Requires GPO to make the Record publicly available on GPO's website in a format which enables it to be downloaded and printed by users.
(1) the authority of the Librarian of Congress to furnish a copy of the daily and bound Record to the Undersecretary of State for External Affairs of Canada in exchange for a copy of the Parliamentary Hansard, and
(2) the Public Printer's requirement to honor the requisition.
Repeals the authority of the Public Printer, under the direction of the Joint Committee, to sell:
(1) subscriptions to the daily Record; and
(2) current, individual numbers and bound sets of it.
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.
