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.

Amends the Economic Stabilization Act of 1970 to abolish the Temporary Emergency Court of Appeals (TECA). Specifies that appeals from orders or judgments entered by a U.S. district court in cases and controversies arising under such Act may be brought in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit if the appeal is from a final decision of the district court or is an interlocutory appeal permitted under the Federal judicial code.
(1) the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978 to substitute the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit for TECA with respect to judicial review of emergency orders under such Act; and
(2) the Federal judicial code to grant such Court exclusive jurisdiction over appeals under specified provisions of such Act, the Emergency Petroleum Allocation Act of 1973, and the Energy Policy and Conservation Act. Provides for the handling of cases pending before TECA.

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.
