Directs the Secretary to take action as necessary to restore recreational use or provide alternative opportunities for comparable recreational use, if maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, or reconstruction of a water resources project results in a change in the configuration of such project and has an adverse effect on a recreational use.

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.
