H.Res. stands for House simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

The resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that any Federal legislation enacted to increase financial assistance to the Farm Credit System (FCS) should:
(1) enable FCS banks and associations to offer loans at lower interest rates than would be possible without the assistance;
(2) ensure the continued participation of borrowers in the management and control of the FCS;
(3) require FCS entities to reduce loan repayment obligations as necessary if the reduction is less costly than foreclosure or legal actions with respect to debtors unable to make payments; and
(4) encourage FCS banks and associations to take part in State mediation programs conducted by independent arbitrators and to offer delinquent borrowers opportunities to restructure their loans.

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.
