Adds provisions with respect to Federal land bank association sales of inventory land to:
(1) require purchasers of such real estate to buy capital stock and participation certificates in the Federal land bank from which the association receives loans; and
(2) establish priorities for sales of such property.

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.
