Notes

H.Con.Res. stands for House concurrent resolution.

A concurrent resolution is often used for matters that affect the rules of Congress or to express the sentiment of Congress. It must be agreed to by both the House and Senate in identical form but is not signed by the president and does not carry the force of law.

The resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

(1) reaffirm the mutual commitment of the participating countries to halting the international cocaine trade;
(2) continue assisting the Andean Strategy nations in their efforts to curtail cocaine production;
(3) encourage cooperation among the participating countries in dismantling drug trafficking cartels and arresting and incarcerating major traffickers;
(4) strengthen the legitimate economies of the Andean Strategy nations through trade incentives and other assistance; and
(5) motivate the participating countries to reduce consumption of illicit drugs within their borders.

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.
