(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced.
The summary of that version is repeated here.) Congratulates the Navy and the many crews of the U.S.S.

(2) the 22 Enterprise sailors who were held as prisoners of war during the Vietnam War, the 3 who died while in captivity, and the 3 still listed as missing-in-action.

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.
