GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

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


2/9/1989--Introduced.
Congressional Salary Act of 1989 - Amends the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 to require congressional pay increases to correspond to increases under title II (Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance) of the Social Security Act and to take effect at the beginning of the next Congress. (Currently such increases correspond to increases under the General Schedule.) Amends the Federal Salary Act of 1967 to make the presidential pay recommendations relating to Members of Congress of an advisory nature only.

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.
