Establishes a Joint Select Committee on Monetary and Commodity Policy comprised of Members from specified committees of both Houses.

Requires the Joint Committee: (1) not later than 15 months after the adoption of this resolution, to report to the Congress on the results of its investigation; and (2) not later than 24 months after such adoption, to report to each House of Congress a bill (which shall not be referred to committee) based on its study and directed at reducing public and private debt, monetary inflation, and trade deficits. Provides that such bill, if the House and Senate are in disagreement, be reported to a conference committee composed of members of the Joint Committee. Terminates the Joint Committee on the date its work is completed, including that of the conference committee.

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.
