The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
Restore the Constitution Act of 2013 - Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act of 2013 - Expresses the sense of Congress that any executive order, memoranda, proclamation, or signing statement issued by the President that infringes on the powers and duties of Congress under article I, section 8 of the Constitution or the Second Amendment, or that would require the expenditure of federal funds not specifically appropriated for such executive action, is advisory only and has no force or effect unless enacted by law.

Authorizes the following persons to bring an action in an appropriate U.S. court to challenge the validity of any such executive action:
(1) any member or either or both chambers of Congress,

(3) any person aggrieved in a liberty or property interest adversely affected by the challenged action.
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.
